Local history and heritage

South Holland is rich in history, with stories to tell from the Romans to the present day. Many heritage sites remain untouched, making our district a fascinating place to live or visit.

Local attractions include:

The larger towns in the district (Spalding, Holbeach and Long Sutton) have civic societies who work to preserve and promote the heritage of their town. Many churches in the district are grade I listed and date back to a time when South Holland was particularly rich, due to the wool trade.
