News at Newton Fallowell | 01/12/2016


Grantham is a picturesque market town in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire. It is situated on the East Coast main line between London and Edinburgh offering regular trains to London Kings Cross in just over an hour.

With excellent access to the A1 north and south, Grantham is located approximately 26 miles south of the city of Lincoln, and approximately 24 miles east of Nottingham. Grantham is surrounded by fantastic countryside and beautiful villages including the highly coveted Vale of Belvoir area. Woolsthorpe by Belvoir offers fantastic views of the 10th century castle Belvoir Castle and an award winning pub The Chequers.

The town is well known as the birthplace of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who attended the grammar school Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School and also the birthplace of Isaac Newton who is a bloodline ancestor of our Managing Director Mark Newton and who attended the local boy’s grammar school, The Kings School, where his alleged signature can still be seen upon a library window sill. Both schools achieve high examination results and are highly placed in the county's league tables. The area has a wealth of good primary schools including Barrowby School, The National School and Grantham Preparatory School, an independent school preparing entrants for the 11-plus examination.

Property prices in Grantham are very affordable and offer fantastic value for commuters to London and Nottingham as well as local people. Mark Newton says: “Grantham remains a buoyant place for the local property scene boosted as it is by its great communications as well as being one of the few places where a Grammar School education remains and Newton Fallowell is totally committed to giving the Grantham public the best possible property advice available”
