Callconnect Area Guide
Stamford is a large town located at the southernmost point in Lincolnshire and has borders with three other counties. It is located close to the A1 north-south trunk road and the A43 runs from the town centre to Northampton and Oxfordshire. Due to its location Stamford is well served by regular bus services to the neighbouring county of Rutland, The Deeping, Peterborough, Bourne and Spalding. In addition to road connections, Stamford has an historic railway station, the design of which was influenced by the nearby stately home, Burghley House; departures are available to Oakham, Leicester, Birmingham, Peterborough and Cambridge. The wealth of transport solutions and links offer those living in the area fantastic connectivity to many exciting UK destinations.
In addition to a wealth of transport options, Stamford has a rich and proud history dating back to its inclusion in the Domesday Book. It is home to the grand 16th century Burghley House which was built for and still lived in by the Cecil family. The listed grade 2 park was designed by Capability Brown and today hosts numerous events but most notably the annual Burghley Horse Trails. Stamford is a beautiful and vibrant town and has been used on many occasions as a key location for film and TV productions, which may be one of the reasons many famous actors, writers, musicians and artists come from the area.
