Flower Delivery to Sleaford with Clare Florist
On the middle eastern side of England is Sleaford, a market town in the county of Lincolnshire. It’s located right beside the Fenlands, a natural marshy region. The nearest town is Grantham, located eighteen kilometres away, with Boston and Lincoln nearby. There are over 17,000 residents living in this town. The easiest roads to take to Sleaford are the A15, and the A17.
Sleaford is listed in the 1086 Domesday book, but it also has the distinction of being recorded from before that time. In 852, a record of the name Sleaford was found in a charter, and listed as “Sliowaford”. Sleaford is old English, sliow and ford, meaning “a ford over a muddy river”.
Sleaford was granted the right to have a market in the 12th century. The town developed quickly, and its main trade was wool. At this time, Old Sleaford slowly declined.
There has been great evidence of ancient civilisations found in Sleaford. History dates back to the Iron Age, with an ancient path found crossing over the river Slea. The Corieltauvi tribe use to live here during the first century. There has also been evidence found of Saxon and Roman settlements. Sleaford was a hub of activity, with a court and a market.
There are medieval records that state that Sleaford was separated into two parts: Old Sleaford, and New Sleaford. New Sleaford had the new market, and the St. Denys Church.
Sleaford Castle was built during medieval times in the early 1120s by the owners, the Bishops of Lincoln, but is now in ruins. It’s believed that people lived there up to 1555, but later in the 16th century, it started disintegrating. King John and King Henry the VIII are believed to have stayed at the castle.
St. Denys Church still remains standing today. It was built in the medieval age, in the 12th century. It has notable tracery and a stone spire which is one of the oldest in England.
Sleaford was mainly an agricultural town until the 20th century. It had a large cattle market, and seed production companies had been established in the late 19th century. Transportation links promoted the trade of seeds and malting. The land is considered to be good agricultural quality. Vegetable farming has increased into the 21st century, with animal farming declining. This land has been valued for being some of the most arable farmland in the entire country.
The trade has shifted to retail, health, wholesale, and manufacture. The National Centre for Craft and Design was built on an old wharf.
