Surrounded by flat fenland countryside Sleaford is an attractive and busy small market town whose skyline is dominated by the 144-foot stone spire of St. Denys’ Church. It has an ancient heritage and notable historic buildings include the remains of its 12th-century castle where the ailing King John is said to have been taken after his accident in The Wash. There are many tourist attractions in and around Sleaford.

The name Sleaford comes from its position as a crossing point ‘ford’ of the River Slea.

The River Slea, seen here leaving Sleaford, is an 18-mile long tributary of the River Witham rising near West Willoughby. At one time it supported 18 watermills, most in Sleaford itself.

Sleaford has a superb golf course and is close to many of the main fishing rivers and RAF airfields in Lincolnshire.
