Residents reveal what they like best about this charming Lincolnshire town

Sitting pretty on the River Welland, the Lincolnshire town of Market Deeping has long been seen as one of our more region’s more desirable places to live, work and grow up.But why is this? What makes this modest town of just over 6,000 people such an attractive prospect?

Is it the town’s heritage buildings and attractive setting? Or is Deeping’s dining and drinking options which give it the edge, along with its compact size? Perhaps it’s the mix of independent shops and convenient supermarkets which locals appreciate most. Maybe it’s the pervasive sense of community which makes people fall in love with the place – who knows?

Fortunately for us, the good folk of Deeping weren’t shy in offering their responses. School teachers, butchers, newsagents, chip shop staff, childminders, antiques dealers and even a few retirees were good enough to share their thoughts with us.

And while these insights may not provide a definitive answer as to what makes this charming old market town so great, they certainly give a good indication as to why so many are proud to call it home.
