The Town

Saxon Stamford was best known for its pottery but, situated as it is on the Great North Road and the River Welland, its trade links thrived, and by the 13th century it was one of the ten largest towns in England. It had a castle, over a dozen churches, four friaries, a university, and parliaments met there. Today many of these buildings still survive whilst it prospers as a small market town, uniquely encased in splendid English architecture - oozing beauty and fascinating history this is a town not to be missed!

Stamford’s recorded history goes back well over 1,000 years. Untouched by the industrial revolution, much of the town centre was built in the 17th and 18th centuries, in Georgian or Jacobean style. Because of its conservation status much of the town still retains its old world charm, and the Heritage Walk will show you most of it!
