Grantham Canal – Galleries


Some of these galleries are very large but each one contains a variety of images of the Canal, the Wharf & the Basin parts of the village – we hope that you enjoy flicking through them or dipping in and out.

We welcome any photographs that you would like to add – please contact us.

(please note: images are free to use for personal and non-commercial purposes – please contact us for business use. The quality of photographs is reduced to make them more accessible on the website; if you would like a full quality copy of any of the images, please contact us.)

Triptych of Hickling Aerial Photographs

(Norton family)

We think we have roughly dated these aerial photographs; however, please contact us if you can help.

Our best guess is sometime between mid-1999 and late May 2001; the towpath was surfaced in 1999 – the parched ground and full trees probably puts them in the late summer and changes on Mill Lane make them unlikely to be later than late May 2001.
