About the Book

Situated on the River Welland, Stamford has a reputation for being one of England’s finest towns. There is a mix of medieval and Georgian architecture, together with older timber-framed buildings that were untouched by the Industrial Revolution or later developments, so its centre has survived remarkably intact. The town’s architecture is outstanding and for this reason, in 1967, it became the country’s first conservation area. In recent years the town has become a popular tourist destination, as well as a filming location for television adaptations of Middlemarchand Pride and Prejudice.

In Stamford History Tour author Christopher Davies guides readers on a fascinating walk through the town and its history. Along the route readers will be able to see how Stamford has changed through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With the help of a handy location map, this pocket-sized guide highlights the streets, buildings and landmarks, and discovers some well-known and hidden aspects of the town’s heritage.
