A famous old market town, Grantham has long been an important hub for
travellers. It still has some fine coaching inns, including the Angel and Royal Hotel, which dates
from the 15th century.
At one time Grantham was an important centre for both wool and agriculture.
While its most obvious landmark is the 280ft spire of St. Wulfran’s Church, the building itself
contains a chained library with volumes dating back to 1472. It was possibly the first public
library in England.
