In December 1990, following an acrimonious challenge to her leadership, Margaret resigned from her position as Prime Minister.  The following year she also stood down as a Member of Parliament.  In 1992 she was elevated to the peerage and became known as Lady Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven in Lincolnshire, becoming a prominent figure in the House of Lords. 

In 1993 Margaret wrote her first book, ‘The Downing Street Years’, followed by her second book, ‘The Path to Power’, in 1995.  In 1991 she established her own foundation, ‘The Thatcher Foundation’, whose aim is to advance the cause of political and economic freedom.

Lady Thatcher’s most recent visit to Grantham took place in 1995 when she signed copies of her second book.  Afterwards she attended the Mayor’s Parlour.  Following her visit Margaret said she had been “thrilled to be back in Grantham”.
