Weston is one of the self-contained Lincolnshire villages along the road between Spalding – the largest town in this area - and Holbeach. With neighbours, Moulton and Whaplode, these are popular places to call home, giving their communities the benefits of village life hand in hand with the facilities of these two market towns, just a short drive away.

This is Lincolnshire’s Fenland, a unique landscape with an age-old rural economy behind the scenes. Agriculture is still key to this area but today, the business of food manufacturing and logistics have come to town and there’s an infrastructure of facilities to go with it.

While Spalding and Holbeach have grown, village life in Weston still revolves around the community. In true village tradition, there’s a village stores and Post Office, a primary school, a village hall, a church and a pub. Both Spalding and Holbeach have supermarkets, secondary schools and leisure facilities so you can easily take your pick.

Living in Weston

Spalding and Holbeach

It’s great to have your own village stores, but these two market towns are where you’ll head for supermarkets. Spalding is only 2 miles away and Holbeach is a little further at 4.5 miles. As well as the Springfield Outlook Shopping and Leisure Centre, just off the A16, Spalding has an ALDI , Lidl, Sainsburys and Morrisons for your weekly shop.

Alternatively, Holbeach has a Tesco Superstore. To celebrate local produce, Spalding’s open-air market is every Tuesday and Saturday, and Holbeach’s farmers’ market is every 3rd Saturday of the month.

Getting to work

Weston is on the A151, the connecting road between the A16 and A17. The A16 is the main cross-country route connecting Peterborough with Grimsby, and the A17 is the connection between Kings Lynn and Sleaford. Spalding has a train station on the Peterborough to Lincoln line, part of the East Midlands Rail network.

Out and about

The famous landscape of the Fens is on your doorstep, a wide open area leading all the way to The Wash and the North Norfolk coast.

One of the other great landmarks of this area is Rutland Water, 26 miles to the southwest of Spalding. It’s well worth the effort for a day out. Close to home, a network of quiet local roads in this level countryside, also make it ideal for getting out on the bike.
