1. Great Gonerby

    The village of Great Gonerby is one of the oldest in the Grantham area and was one of the villages owned by the Belton House estate. The houses in the Main Street are mostly Georgian, although several are much earlier, and built of Ancaster stone. The church stands on the site of an ancient Saxon place of worship and has an interesting stone alcove and other Tudor effigies and carvings. The clock has been the target of the ‘clock pelters’, who pelted the face with either stones or clods of earth to try to stop the clock so that no one knew the time and the workers would go home earlier – whether it really worked for or against them is difficult to know!
