THE RIVER WELLAND has been a main waterway through South Lincolnshire for centuries, flowing through Stamford, Market Deeping, Deeping St James, Crowland, Spalding and finally out to the sea at Fosdyke. This beautifully illustrated book is concerned principally with the role the Welland has played on its journey through the Deepings. Dorothea Price explores the history of the river prior to the Canal Age, then in the heyday of river commerce in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries when the section between Stamford and Deeping St James was canalised, and finally in more recent times.
