Website:

West Deeping Heritage Group launched its own website in July 2013: 

 http://wdheritage.wordpress.com/

It is "under construction" and as well as publicising the general activities of the group, it provides a unique record of the Heritage Lottery funded "All our Stories" project "The Boaty Story", about the Stamford Canal, part of the Welland Navigation.

The Deepings Remember 1914 to 1918 is another project in which West Deeping Heritage Group took part. The website has a section for the Deepings Roll of Honour, commemorating all those who served in the First World War. Contact by descendants of West Deeping servicemen is most welcome, as a book is being prepared for publication in 2018.

The website will also provide a digital home for many local history resources.
