High Street - St. Martin's - Stamford
Stamford is one of Britain’s finest stone built market towns, which retains much of its ancient medieval street pattern. Stamford has appeared in many historical films including George Eliot’s Middlemarch, and more recently it starred in Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. Being on the old coaching route from London to Edinburgh meant that Stamford was the first to receive news out of the capital, and Stamford Mercury (the oldest provincial newspaper in the country) still thrives in this vibrant community. It also meant that Stamford gave rise to many fine coaching inns. The town has 11 churches, 30 pubs and 20 restaurants. Find out more about the history of Stamford.
