Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Stamford (A Guided Walk in Stamford)

“Stamford” is a Guided Walk 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 an outstanding stone-built town on the River Welland and the Great North Road.

It was one of the Five Boroughs of the Danelaw and was designated England’s first Conservation Area in 1967.

The walk starts in Red Lion Square in the Town Centre.

The party will view many of the outstanding features of Stamford, which is one of the showplaces of England. The beautiful stone comes mostly from either Barnack or Ketton.

There are five mediaeval churches – St. Mary’s; All Saints; St. George’s; St. John’s; and St. Martins Church, whose churchyard contains the grave of the enormous Daniel Lambert of Leicester.

Other highlights include Browne’s Hospital; the Brasenose Gateway; and the George Inn, with its rare gallows sign.

Stamford can be reached by train from Leicester, Oakham and Peterborough.
