Stamford Past


A town with a well-recorded history stretching back well over a thousand years, and one of the five `Danish Boroughs'. It was an important medieval town boasting 14 parish churches and numerous religious houses, after which there was decline till the late 17th century with the re-opening of the Welland Navigation and the growth of the coaching trade. The 18th century saw a `boom', when its many fine Georgian houses were built. When the railway came it by-passed the town, which stunted its industrial growth but helped to preserve the ancient town, which now prospers, as the author describes in this very readable book.
