Location & Connectivity


Situated predominantly in rural Lincolnshire, South Kesteven is a main gateway to Greater Lincolnshire and the growth centres in the south east.

Home to the four historic market towns of Grantham, Stamford, Bourne and Market Deeping, the position of this thriving region, within the East Midlands, offers great opportunities for local, national and international business.

Located on two of the UK’s main north-south arteries of the East Coast mainline railway and the A1 corridor, South Kesteven offers easy access to the major trade routes, allowing UK-wide cargo distribution from a location strategically close to the UK’s industrial heartland.

Easily accessible by road, rail and air, South Kesteven’s enviable connectivity makes it a great base from which to work, commute and conduct business.

With direct rail access to London in just over an hour and similar journey times to Leeds and Sheffield, its current workforce and business patterns are already wide-ranging; extending up and down the UK.

Many of its towns are situated within minutes of the East Coast mainline and the A1 corridor, which are gateways to key international travel hubs. East Midlands Airport, the country’s busiest air freight distribution hub, is just 35 miles away and the city of Nottingham, with a population of over 325,000, is just 35 minutes away – providing excellent access to clients and skills.

There are countless commercial land development opportunities along the A1 corridor which are perfect for logistic hubs and employment space. Businesses with headquarters and warehouse facilities here can access national and international markets with ease thanks to South Kesteven’s proximity to the road and rail network and four international airports within 1.5 hours.

There are four sea ports on the nearby Humber (Hull, Goole, Grimsby and Immingham) offering close links to markets in Scandinavia and mainland Europe. Immingham (currently the UK’s largest port by volume) is less than 24 hours from a European market of 170 million people.

With such great connectivity, South Kesteven is the perfect place to do business.
