|St Guthlac is the Parish Church of
Market Deeping, the most southerly town in Lincolnshire with its sister
community of Deeping
St James. The River Welland runs through the town 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 ten churches dedicated to St Guthlac, all of which are members
of the Guthlac Fellowship.
