Stamford in 50 Buildings

Celebrating 50 years of a Conservation Town

Availability: In stock

Author: Christopher Davies

Stamford has a reputation for being one of England's finest stone towns. It has a happy mix of medieval and Georgian architecture that was untouched by the Industrial Revolution or later large-scale developments, so its central core has survived remarkably intact. Its 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 for both home and overseas visitors.

Stamford in 50 Buildings explores the history of this Lincolnshire town through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures, from medieval churches to picturesque town centre buildings. Follow local author Chris Davies as he guides us on a tour of the town's most notable buildings.
