More to see and do in Grantham
Grantham Civic Society’s motto is ‘Preserve the good in the old and encourage the good in the new’.
We provide a heritage service installing Blue Plaques and information boards in Grantham. We also take guided walks for visitors and hold talks and lectures, all by our volunteers. We also publish books about the town.
Sitting elegantly in formal gardens with views across pleasure grounds and an ancient deer-park, Belton is often cited as being the perfect example of an English country-house estate. Although built on a modest scale, it has a fine collection of porcelain and silver, a world-renowned library and architectural finesse that reflects the continued wealth and cultured tastes of its former owners, the Brownlow family. In more recent times, Belton has become a popular destination for families in search of outdoor fun, with seasonal trails and the National Trust’s largest outdoor adventure playground.read more
