Old Images of Spalding, Lincolnshire

Spalding Church Lincolnshire 1801

Glimpse history through fascinating old images of Spalding in Lincolnshire, England.

Ascoughfee Hall

Ascoughfee Hall is a popular destination both for local residents and visitors to Spalding. This old postcard captures this important local landmark well over a century ago.

Old Photos of Spalding

This video of old photos of Spalding take us back to the 1920s.

The old images show

  • Hall Place
  • W.Fletcher, Outfitters at 6, Market Place

Then there’s 2 minutes of drone footage from 2020, filming the town and its environment from above.

Spalding’s Dad’s Army in 1941

*A real gem in the film archives*

On the 15 October 1942, the ARP and Home Guard carried out defensive exercises, which also involved many local women and children.

Large numbers of people came out to watch from behind a rope, too.

Amazingly, silent newsreel footage of this event still exists.

And because it happened in the middle of town, several streets, a number of homes and multiple businesses were included in the footage background.

You’ll love this for the places you know and recognise, but also for the astonishing dramatic exercises taking place on the streets of a small market town during wartime.


The Tulip Industry

Spalding’s tulip and daffodil fields were an important part of the local economy in the twentieth century. The area grew about three quarters of all British tulips.

The British flower industry was so well respected that it even carried on during World War II, as shown in a newsreel from 1940.

By 1963, the industry was using attractive young girls in skimpy clothing as part of their marketing activities. The newsreel is very different to the silent footage of the female pickers in 1929 and 1932.

Spalding Flower Parades

The last Spalding Flower Parade took place in 2013, 55 years after it started.

But when the Spalding Flower Parade was filmed for newsreels in the 1950s and 1960s, the fairly recent tradition was in its heyday, as was the Lincolnshire flower industry.

Millions of tulips, grown on 3,000 acres of local land, adorned the parade floats.

The Tulip Queens were an important part of the celebrations. Joan Roberts, Tuplip Queen in 1950, was crowned by the film star Carol Marsh. Jill Whitehouse was the Tulip Queen in 1959, and Norah Woods took the title in 1961.

Hundreds of people appear in these newsreels, and we see the occasional home in the background too.

Angling Championships (1962)

A short newsreel about the 1962 Angling Competition focuses on the river, but the opening seconds have some nice shots of local industrial buildings as contestants boarded the bus.

The Daily Mirror Cup was won by Vernon Baker from Derby.

A bit of Spalding history


Published in 1855

Pages 209 – 213

SPALDING is a well – built and respectable seaport, market town and railway station, in the wapentake of Elloe, situated 93 miles from London, 16 south – west – by south of Boston, and 40 south – east of Lincoln.

The river Welland runs through the town. It is navigable for vessels of 100 tons, by which means a large trade in coals has been carried on for many years; it was once a parliamentary borough.

The town is not incorporated; it is now governed by 15 commissioners – the Spalding Improvement Act of 1853 giving this power to the town – under whom a new cemetery, corn exchange, and other improvements have already been originated.

An act is about to be applied for to establish a “Spalding, Bourn, and Stamford railway, and Spalding waterworks.”

Quarter and petty sessions are held here for the parts of Holland. The petty sessions are held every alternate Tuesday. A county court for the district of Spalding is held every first Wednesday in the month.

The Sessions – house is a large, handsome building in the Sheep – market, erected about 13 years since, at a cost of £ 6,000; close to it stands the House of Correction, a large building, erected in 1826, at an outlay of £ 1,500.

The town is lighted with gas.

The parish of Spalding contains 12,070 acres of land, which produce large quantities of wheat and oats, also woad, chicory, mustard and flax.

The population of the parish, in 1851, was 8,829; and of the town, 7,627.

Maurice Johnson, Esq., is lord of the manor.

Spalding Union comprises the nine parishes of Spalding, Pinchbeck, Moulton, Surfleet, Gosberton, Quadring, Donington, Cowbit, and Weston. The Board of Guardians meet every alternate Monday.

There is a large bone – mill, and the town carries on a very extensive trade in corn, meal, flour, timber, wool, oileake and wine. There are three large steam flour – mills, and also several windmills for grinding corn, from which a great deal of flour is sent into the manufacturing districts. Quantities of fruit and vegetables are also sent by rail to the London markets, and manufacturing districts. There are breweries, lime mills, brickfields, and coach – works.

The market – day is Tuesday, for earn, cattle, sheep, fish and fowl; and on Saturday, vegetables and fruits are sold. There are five yearly fairs for cattle and merchandise, held April 27th, June 29th, August 28th, September 25th, and December 6th; also two statute fairs for hiring servants, one in April, the other in September.

The High bridge over the Welland was rebuilt in 1838. There are two other bridges, for foot passengers only.

The parish church, dedicated to St. Mary and St. Nicholas, is a large, old building, originally of the early English architecture, but with many alterations, in the perpendicular style; is is fitted up with galleries capable of seating 3,500 persons. The tower is a handsome structure, and the north porch is a superior specimen of perpendicular architecture.

Our Lady chapel, on the south side, is now used as the Free Grammar school.

The perpetual curacy, valued at £ 950 per annum, is in the patronage of trustees, and incumbency of the Rev. William Moore, D.D.; the curates are the Revs, John Cunningham, M.A., and Robert Hollis, M.A.

Here is a Friends ‘ meeting – house, and seven chapels of various denominations.

The National school, for 200 boys and 200 girls, was built in 1845, at a cost of £ 1,600, on a commodious site near the church. The Blue Coat school, the Free Grammar school, and the Petit school are all endowed.

Gamlyn’s almshouses, founded by Sir Matthew Gamlyn, were rebuilt in 1844, in the Gothic style; there are also almshouses founded by William Willesby.

The antiquities of the town are not numerous, but there are some remains of the outbuildings of the ancient abbey of Spalding, now converted into dwelling – bouses.

Falney Hall, one mile north of the church, is now rebuilt.

The old Town – hall has recently been removed, and a new one is about to be erected at the corner of Crackpool – lane, in the Market – place.

The houses of the gentry are of the first class; and although standing in a level, flat country, it has a pleasing appearance, and, as a trading town, bearing a resemblance to the Dutch towns. It is well drained, and considered to be a healthy place.

Spalding is a member of the port of Boston, and is the port of Stamford, Market Deeping and Crowland, and has water communication with the whole county. The yearly tonnage of shipping inwards is above 10,000.

Three miles north – east of the town is Wykeham, or Wickham, a chapelry in Spalding parish, with 57 inhabitants.

WINSOVER, 1 mile south, and Fulney, 1 mile east, are small hamlets. Little London, 1 mile south; Hawthorn Bank, 1 mile south – west; Monks House, 13 miles west; and Pode Hole, 2 miles west.
