Stamford in Lincolnshire lies on the A1 road between London ,York and Edinburgh.
A very pretty place - many of the buildings are constructed from the local Lincolnshire limestone.
Famous sons of Stamford include Colin Dexter author of Inspector Morse - born 1930 and Sir. Malcolm Sargent conductor and composer - born 1895.
Stamford has been a setting for the TV Drama Middlemarch and films such as Pride and Predudice 2004 and The Da Vinci Code 2006
I would recommend a visit to Stamford - a really nice place.
