St Guthlac, Market Deeping

Market Deeping is the most southerly town in Lincolnshire with its sister community of Deeping St James.  The River Welland runs through and was the river that St Guthlac came down in the 7th century to live in the wild and desolate fen at Crowland.  From there Crowland Abbey was established and the monks built our church.  The oldest stone part of the church dates from 1179, although there was a wooden church here before that..  There are eleven churches dedicated to St Guthlac, all of which are members of the Guthlac Fellowship.
