The Gazette would be incredibly useful - it covers such a broad time period
Sleaford was also the county town of Kesteven until 1974 and the Kesteven County Council offices were located in the town, making it an important centre for local administration.
Also, the papers are catalogued by the BLAnonymous shared this idea ·

Hi everyone, just to give you a little update:
We have just added the ‘Market Rasen Weekly Mail, and Lincolnshire Advertiser’, years 1856-1955 to our digitisation plan. In addition, we have also just added the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph 1937-1950 to the plan.
Please be aware that until we have received the material into our studio and checked it, it is not possible to guarantee that it will be digitised.
Thank you for your suggestion. We have investigated the availability of the Lincolnshire Free Press – The good news (pun intended!) is that 1. It is in scope for us and 2. It appears to be available to us as microfilm. So . . . we have added this to our digitisation plan for future digitisation!

I've just added an idea for the Sleaford Gazette and Sleaford Journal. As far as I know, both are in the BL archives.
