Abstract: It looks at the history of the Port of Spalding from its very earliest origins through to its subsequent demise. Not only does it examine the history of the port, but it also examines the ports role within the town itself and how it helped to shape Spalding into the town it is today. It looks at the industries that grew up around the port and how they too suffered from the same periods of prosperity and decline.
