The Deepings are nestled in the Lincolnshire Fens, between Peterborough, Stamford and Spalding. The Deeping include Market Deeping (a lovely market town), Deeping St James (one of the largest of the Deeping villages), Deeping St Nicolas, Deeping Gate and West Deeping. Their name is Saxon for “deep lands” or “deep place”. The River Welland runs through them, and it can be picturesque and relaxing to walk along it.
Join Boston Ramblers for a walk around Market Deeping on Celebrate the Fens weekend.
Boston Ramblers are a walking group who put on various rambles across the year in Lincolnshire. Walking outside is great for your fitness and your wellbeing. They aim to help people enjoy walking and to protect the places they walk in.
