The Deepings is the collective name given to a delightful group of historic villages in South Kesteven comprising Market Deeping, Deeping St James, Deeping Gate, West Deeping and Deeping St Nicholas. With a history dating back beyond the Bronze Age, the charming town of Market Deeping stands proudly on the River Welland, to the east of Stamford. Today the town is thriving with regular markets, a varied and busy high street in an attractive historic setting and is home to the ever-growing bi-annual Deepings Literary Festival which attracts many of the greats from the literary world. The Deepings owes its architecture and character to the merchant wealth flowing from the ancient River Welland and the former Deepings to Stamford canal, with its towpath perfect for walking and cycling. A walk down the glorious Georgian Church Street is a must, stopping off at the 13th Century St Guthlac’s church built by Margaret Beaufort - the mother of Henry VII - which retains many Anglo Saxon features and has two sun dials. Among the other gems to be found in the Deepings is the magnificent Priory Church in Deeping St James, originally a Benedictine priory which dates back to 1139. And just around the corner is the tiny market cross lock up of 1819, capable of housing three criminals. Visitors will find plenty of places to eat in Market Deeping, including The Bull and The Deeping Stage in the Market Place - both historic coaching inns having been formally on the main road to Lincoln. There’s also an award-winning fish and chip shop, restaurants, charming tea rooms and cafes. And for the shoppers, there’s a selection of boutiques and independent shops to entertain, including the irresistible Market Deeping Antiques and Craft Centre. Water remains the attraction at Deepings Lakes, a 160-acre Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust nature reserve near Deeping St James - a perfect spot for walking and bird watching. And with animals in mind, visitors can enjoy the lakeside setting which is Misty Meadows Alpacas, offering the opportunity to meet and walk with alpacas.

Its long history dates back to 1918 after the amalgamation of the Royal Naval Air Service and Royal Flying Corps who sought to establish a single unit where officers could be trained to fly. It became the first Military Air Academy in the world. At the Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum you can discover the history of RAF Cranwell from its early days as a Royal Naval Air Service base to the current day. The experience includes interactive exhibits such as a Jet Provost flight simulator, Vampire nose pod, exhibitions and artefacts. There is also a courtyard area with Jet Provost aircraft on display.
The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is a family run museum and was set up over 20 years ago. It is now widely seen as a living memorial to the 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2. It holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber, in its collection along with many wartime vehicles including a Ford WOT1 Crew Bus, the only one of its kind known in existence.
