Way back in 1213 Bawtry was granted its first charter and has remained a market town ever since. Visitors to the town often question the fact that Bawtry was a 12th century port in fact it was the third largest inland port in England!!
In 1379 Bawtry was a growing port and it continued to develop its river trade until 1777 when traffic bound for the Rivers Trent and Humber was re-routed onto the newly opened Chesterfield Canal- during the 12th century Bawtry was the third largest inland port in England!!
Just across from the shop you will find Bawtry Hall which was built in 1785 and became famous as Bomber Command for the RAF during the Second World War.
