Market Deeping – High Street

Many thanks to William Wade for this undated image of Deeping High Street.

William adds, “I thought you might like this photograph of the High Street, Market Deeping. The house on the right was called “The Park” and belonged to my family. The next one along was a solicitors office (now demolished) called Sharpe and Wade and built for my great grandfather. The next row of brick houses was built to replace a row of thatched cottages which was demolished for the widening of Godsey Lane (then Tinker’s’ Lane). The photograph was taken before the War (probably the 1st) as the railings went to aid the war effort.”

Church Street, Deeping St James

Church Street, Deeping St James with the Drapers/Grocers of Chatteris born Frank Wilderspin on the right.

Robert Stockwell adds ……

“The street shown is Church Street, Deeping St James. The shop is now a bakers.

The shop in the photograph is called Shillaker. From the 1901 Census the owner was John Shillaker (b. abt 1842 Towngate, Market Deeping). His son Beauvais (b. abt 1883), also worked in the shop.

Frank Rignall Wilderspin (b. abt 1873 Chatteris), in the 1911 Census, is a shop owner (Draper, Grocer and Milliner) in Church Street, Market Deeping. In the 1901 Census he is living in Glinton, an employee Draper & Grocer.

EDIT: I’ve checked the location again and in fact the bakery is prior to the shop shown in the photograph. This is also confirmed in the 1901 Census. I have also checked this with the current owner of the bakery. The shop in the photograph no longer exists.”

Market Deeping – The George Inn

A very early 1900s shot of The George Inn at Market Deeping which I believe sat at the end of Towngate East just ahead of the junction with Peterborough Road (crossing image in background) and just round the corner from today’s Towngate Inn.
