Description and Travel

Market Deeping is both an ancient market town and a parish lying 90 miles north of London and a few miles north of Peterborough. Deeping St. James parish lies to the southeast and Langtoft parish to the northwest. Northamptonshire lies to the south, just across the River Welland. The area is flat fenland, about 1,540 acres, drained by many small canals including the South Drove Drain.

Before 1870, the town was basically one long street lying on the north bank of the River Welland. In the early 1800s the town grew to the north toward Langtoft village. If you are planning a visit:
