This cluster of villages on the edge of the fens historically take their names from the deep land in this part of England, the Saxons used "deeping" and the prefix told you the activity taking place or the location. So you will find Market, West, St. Nicholas and Gate nearby.
The Granary is situated just off the Stamford Road on the northern edge of the delightful Lincolnshire village of West Deeping, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book and described in Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's Buildings of England for Lincolnshire as ‘uncommonly charming'.
West Deeping is a village of only 100 or so houses and lies approximately four miles east of the historic market town of Stamford. The main street through the village is lined with "chocolate box" stone houses and cottages for about half a mile along the old Roman road known as King Street. The village has its own public house and church. St. Andrew's is mostly 14th and 15th century the present tower and spire date from around 1370.
The village is well placed, having excellent communications to points east and west via the A16 linking to the A1 and A15. The A1 is within 5 miles to the west and the A15 within 3 miles to the east, both roads give access to the wider road network. Peterborough is some 16 miles to the south east where regular mainline trains take from about 50 minutes to London Kings Cross.
