Stamford Directory

Stamford is an ancient town located in the south of Lincolnshire, approximately 100 miles to the north of London, just off the A1 (which, before its diversion in 1960, ran through Stamford), leading to York and Edinburgh.

There is substantial presence of professional firms, law and accountancy. Government and third sector employers also play a role in the local economy, notably the hospital and schools, also the two large medical general practices. Hospitality is provided by a large number of licensed premises and many restaurants, tea rooms and cafés. The surrounding villages and Rutland Water provide additional venues and employment opportunities, as do the several annual large events at Burleigh House.
