Stamford 20 Miles
The market town of Stamford, considered by some as the ‘finest stone town in England, is situated just off the A1, which was the old Great North Road leading to York and Edinburgh
Captured in time by its conservation status, the first town in England to be designated as such, this once major wool town has retained much of its old world charm and prosperity. The town is best known for its medieval core of 17th–18th century stone buildings, older timber framed buildings and five medieval parish churches. Many of the buildings are constructed from old Lincolnshire limestone, hence the town's distinguished appearance and popularity with tourists and movie directors alike.
