Sleaford is a small country located in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It takes its name from the River Slea, a tributary of the River Witham. It is north-east of the town of Grantham and north-west of the town of Boston. Sleaford lies 115 miles north of the capital London. and the city of Lincoln is eighteen miles to the north.
Sleaford has a thriving cattle market in which cows are daily exchanged for such exotic items such as toothbrushes. It is now also developing tourism and is expanding rapidly. This is mainly due to the town's notable occupants. The town's current population is around 15,000. Due to a nuclear explosion that occured in 2003 (see Unimportant Facts for the cause), the number of legs on cows ranges between 5 and 23. Mutated cows are actually considered a delicacy in France; unfortunately Sleaford is too cut off from the rest of the EU to benefit.
Only very recently (i.e. 1999) did Sleaford receive such vital amenities as electricity, which the rest of the country (even local Boston, approx 20 miles south, with its six-toed inhabitants) had been enjoying for...however many years you think Britain's had electricity. The River Slea, unfortunately, stinks.
Sleaford has a current population of 27,189,339, because abortion has been banned by Chancellor Palpatine of the local council.
History & culture
Sleaford was founded in 1234 B.C. by Satan, as a place for secret orgies and chicken sacrifices. These days, far worse happens.
Both grammar schools are in varying stages of decay. Since they were simultaneously built in 1604 B.C., one can only assume that they are to be considered 'historical'. The maintainers will tell you that they're more modern than the Tate, but they're just referring to the staff room.
The Hub art gallery is probably the most pointless building in the entire town, with one of its previous exhibitions including bizarre constructions made out of bits of twigs and shells. Since this is Uncyclopedia, you might think I'm talking crap...but we all know about 'modern art'. Looks nice from the outside.
Another historical building is the Sleaford Corn exchange. Home to the drug addicts of Sleaford, it also houses a flavourful variety of dead pigeons. It must be noted that, due to Sleaford's extreme isolation from the outside world, many addicts find it difficult to score reefer or coke and there have been instances of ODing on Lemsip.
Recent archaeological research has uncovered the foundations of what is believed to be the world's first 30,000ft skyscraper, at the Castlefields playpark. Some evidence has also been gathered which suggests that in the 6th century B.C. Sleaford once came up with a cure for AIDS and all forms of cancer: unfortunately, at around the same time, alcohol was discovered.
Sleaford's local culture borrows many influences from Japan, Hollywood and Hooters. Since Sleaford receives luxuries at least 50-90 years after the rest of the Western world, its culture is rich, diverse, and downright crap.
Local pastimes include duck-riding, tony hunting, spitting from the balcony of the Hub art gallery, spraying badly mispelled graffiti on the walls of Nag's Head Passage, and excessive consumption of white spirit from Aldi's (sold as "cider"). Another great pastime is a certain rite of passage which is re-enacted every week: the famous "Dancing at Flicks" ritual. Supposedly, many years ago, before the cinema (Flicks in a past life) was even erected, there stood a huge ceremonial ground, upon which savages performed human sacrifices... and danced! Now centuries on, a lot of the Sleafordian population seem to still have the urge to dance, but thankfully, their bloodlust seems to have waned.
A block of toilets, closed down officially in April 2001, have recently been demolished after a 5 year wait.
At the Mill, guests are invited to poke fun at the 12 year old midgets employed to move the mill wheel. Originally powered by hamsters, the Mill had to change the species of its staff after the local council decided that rodents are cuter than dwarves.
There is also a unique
phallic symbol windmill with no sails.
Another great attraction is the local game of tony hunting, where random youths shout "Tony" at random old men and gauge their reaction for some form of entertainment. Since its fragile beginings in the Sixth Form common rooms, it has moved out on to the streets and into cars.
- Sleaford has exactly the same number of schools as the NHS has clean hospital beds.
- The infamous Sleaford Joint Sixth Form is the source of many a wild rumour.
- The schools that make up this collaboration are the 2 grammar schools and,
for some reason, St Georges; probably to make the common kids feel less rejected than they were already and to give the genuinly smart ones a chance to get away from the other bastards.
Of course, as is the Sleafordian juvenile's way, everybody thinks their school is the best in the country, but they socialise with each other anyway.
A member of the Royal Family probably visited Sleaford at some point, possibly to shift some landmines.
There are actually more travel agencies in Sleaford than there are things to do, which is probably just a suggestion to you all.
God created Man, Man created Sleaford, and God wept.
