  • Discovering the History of Sleaford

    24 Jun 2018 - 24 Jun 2018
    Navigation House
    Navigation Wharf, Carre Street, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

    Back by popular demand! Join local historian, Simon Pawley as he joins Navigation House to discover the evolution of Sleaford’s wharf area. Constructed in the early 1790s, Sleaford Navigation had a difficult beginning. Originally designed to run through the town to a wharf on its western side, the Navigation Company found itself running out of money and forced to end its project east of the town centre. How they dealt with this crisis would turn out to have a long-lasting influence on the future development of the town.
