John Clare Cottage Museum
Attractions | The Deepings
Tucked away between Stamford and Market Deeping lies the village of Helpston, the home of the renowned poet John Clare (1793-1864). John Clare lived in the village from 1793 until 1832. The John Clare Trust purchased the cottage in 2005. The cottage has been restored, using traditional building methods, to create a centre where people can learn about John Clare, his works and how rural people lived in the early 19th century. The gardens have been planted with varieties which would have been seen in Clare's time. The centre also includes a shop selling Clare related books, cards and craftwork created by local artists. There is also a cafe where you can enjoy homemade soup, scones and cakes.
