Town of Wainfleet

Since the bypass was built, the heavy traffic no longer passes through the town centre. This makes a very pleasant quiet atmosphere. There are good range of shops. There is a market and the W.I. have a market in the O.A.P. Hall (Rumbold Street) on Fridays.

Half Day closing is on Thursdays.

Doctors Surgery is on William Way

Look out for Barkham Street which looks just like a terrace of London town houses. Magdalen College is now a museum and library.

In the thirteen hundreds, Wainfleet was a prominent port in the UK. Wool and grain were important commodities exported from here. The town sent two ships with over 45 men to help Edward III invade Brittany in 1359. Young men from Wainfleet were involved in the fight with the Spanish Armada. The port lost its value with the silting of the river and the rise of Boston as a trading port on the East Coast. One of the local inns .. the Jolly Sailor... reminds of Wainfleet's sea going history.
