Stamford and All Saints (A Guided Walk in Stamford)
"Stamford and All Saints" is a Guided Walk around the outstanding town of Stamford in Lincolnshire, devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.
These strolls are an excellent way of soaking up some Local History.
Stamford is one of England's showplaces, and in 1967 was designated the country's first Conservation Area.
The walk starts in Red Lion Square, outside the HSBC Bank.
Along the way, Colin discusses some key aspects of Stamford's history, including the reasons for the extraordinary route that was taken through the town by the old Great North Road. This is still a major street running through the town centre.
Other lesser known aspects of Stamford's heritage included are the Norman Postern Gate, a fragment of Stamford Castle and the last remaining bastion of the old town wall.
Included on the route is Barn Hill, home of the famous antiquarian William Stukeley, and with associations with Charles I.
