Join us on our Civic Society visit to Grantham

Thursday 15 August

The Lincolnshire town of Grantham – the destination for our anniversary summer trip. 

The itinerary starts at the Grade 1 listed Old Kings School which Isaac Newton attended.

Members of Grantham Civic Society will then show us their “blue plaque” trail to discover the town’s fascinating heritage including the historic Market Place, Market Cross and the Old Conduit, St Wulfram's Church including the Trigg Library - maybe the oldest public library in the country. 

For those who want it, there’s a sandwich lunch* (and a brief talk) at the Angel & Royal Hotel - one of the oldest inns in the country and visited by several kings or there are lots of cafes and restaurants for you to choose yourself.

Grantham Museum has displays about Margaret Thatcher, Isaac Newton and special exhibitions including one about the Dambusters raids.

Everything is within easy walking distance of our coach drop off, and there will be time to explore the shops and sites independently.

Tickets are 20 and can be booked at the Wilderspin National School Museum (01652 635172).

Departure 08.30 from the Wilderspin National School, Queen Street – free car parking available.

* not inc. in ticket -sandwiches and chips 7.95pp or around 10 to include a choice of tea or coffee.
