Bawtry has been a market town since it was granted its first charter in 1213. Its location made Bawtry the “Gateway to the North” with major road and rail networks passing through the town. Several Roman military camps were situated close to Bawtry because the town lay across the route from Lincoln to York. The legions would have forded the River Idle close to where the stone bridge on Gainsborough Road now stands.
In the middle ages, the roads were so bad that the rivers were preferred as a means of transport. 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. After the Turnpike Act of 1759, the roads improved and stage coaches ran regular services from stage to stage. Bawtry was one of these stages. The coming of the railways destroyed the coach business and closed Bawtry’s port, as the river had to be diverted in order the build the line. Bawtry Hall was built in 1785 by Pemberton Milnes, a Wakefield wool merchant. The house and its gardens blocked the old north road.
In 1890 the town hall was built for public functions. It could hold four hundred and fifty people, and is now home to Bawtry’s Flower and Plant sales. In 1839 the Chapel of the hospital of St Mary Magdalene was built for people who lived in Tickhill Road. This is now the home of the masonic movement. Sailors and merchants have worshipped in St Nicholas’ church since 1200 although it did not become Bawtry’s parish church until 1858. The building has been altered many times, doorways blocked and side chapels added. The tower fell in 1670 and was rebuilt with the help of money from Samuel dawson, son of Aquilla. The church is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, a bishop who once saved three girls from being sold as slaves. He threw bags of gold into their home so they could afford to get married.
Swan Street was named after what was probably the oldest and largest of the Bawtry coaching inns. All that remains is the dovecot (now part of The Gift Shop down the courtyard). The two top stories were for doves and pigeons and lowest was used as a table. When the proprietor, Thomas Fisher, moved to Scrooby Top Inn to try to take business from his rival George Clark of Barnby Moor, the Swan rapidly declined and the Crown developed.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
