RE: Buying property in Grantham

Grantham is a market town with a bustling town centre - quite a nice town - well laid out and pleasant to visit. Lively - no. There are some probably quite trendy pubs but thats about it. Some cafe bars and a theatre but not much else.
Good transport links with regular trains in all directions. There is no uni - the nearest would be Nottingham which is 25 miles away. I have no idea how easy it is to let property.

Travel Tips for Grantham

Grantham

by btex

Some of my relatives live in Grantham - it's about 20-30 miles east from Nottingham. It's not a very big town, but well-known figures such as Margaret Thatcher and Sir Isaac Newton came from Grantham. There are some nice attractions in Grantham as well: Grantham Museum, Belvoir Castle, St. Wulfram's Church...for example.
http://www.granthamnet.co.uk/enter.htm The picture is of the river Witham which runs through the town. A path alongside the river is good for walking/jogging/biking. St. Wulfram's, gardens, Wyndham Park, and more can be seen or reached from the riverwalk.

Grantham Gingerbread

by btex

It's said that gingerbread or a type of gingerbread or the gingerbread man was created in Grantham (I've heard all three stories.) It was first made by accident in Grantham in the 1740s when a baker was making biscuits and added the wrong ingredient...the new concoction was a white cake he called Grantham gingerbread, and, from what I've read, it was a vast improvement to the biscuits that he was really trying to make. Anyway...even though the original recipe has changed, Grantham gingerbread is a local delicacy and can be sampled at Catlin's Restaurant.

AT HOME IN GRANTHAM

"WHY GRANTHAM?"

OK, I know, Grantham is not the cultural or touristic centre of the world and probably never will be...in fact, it was once voted the most boring town in England! but being my hometown it still has a special place in my heart and if you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track to meet real British people, doing normal British things and enjoying typical British restaurants and nightlife, then why not stop off and have a look around. After all there are a few famous firsts from this town: did you know that Grantham is the hometown of Britain's first woman Primeminister? It is where the first policewoman worked and home to the first traffic light. Apart from that it is also where Isaac Newton (the great physics man) went to school and where the Dambuster's raid was planned. There are many hidden treasures in this town waiting to be discovered and of course for me the best thing - my family!

"WHAT TO SEE IN GRANTHAM?"

On Saturdays the market comes to town bringing life to Wide Westgate.
Around town there are National Trust gardens and castles: just down the road is Belvoir Castle and Belton House.
Grantham has an interesting museum.
St. Wulfram's church has one of the highest spires in Britain, you can climb up the stairs and see the chained library.
The market place conduit has a long history.
