Why Move to Stamford
A quaint historic market town, packed with period charm, Stamford boasts 1,000 years of history and dates from before Saxon time. As a remarkable testament to its past, Stamford is packed with over 600 listed buildings, and its five medieval church spires dominate its skyline.
This Lincolnshire town nestles peacefully in the vale of the river Welland, providing beautiful river walks, it is regularly referred to as the “jewel of the East Midlands”.
Much of Stamford is built on Middle Jurassic Lincolnshire limestone, as well as mudstones and sandstone, evident in its pretty honey-coloured stone buildings.
Stamford is widely regarded as one of the finest stone towns in England. The pretty facades of the town are favourites with film and television producers. Not just an attractive location, Stamford is also a practical place to live.
Trains run hourly from its local station to Peterborough, Birmingham, Leicester, and Cambridge, whilst London can be reached in a little under 1½ hours. Access elsewhere in the region by road is via the nearby A1, A606, and A1175, although there are other equally accessible roads criss-crossing the area making light work of motorway links.
Local amenities include Morrisons, Lidl, Sainsbury’s, and Waitrose supermarkets. Not content with standing still, the local district council has literally just approved the Stamford Neighbourhood Development Plan. The far-reaching plan will see a swathe of initiatives introduced which will not only help local residents but will also improve Stamford’s economy by attracting new businesses to the town and creating new jobs for Stamford people.
Stamford is a vibrant, bustling, rural market town and visitor attraction that anyone would be proud to call home.
Schools & Education
Finding the best school for your child is of course of utmost importance, no matter how nice the area may be.
You can start your search in your chosen area by visiting Ofsted’s website. They will list all local schools in a given area and how well they are performing.

Great Casterton Church of England Primary School was the top-rated primary in the area and Stamford Welland Academy has been rated as being “good”.
Private education is available via several independents. The closest private schools are Stamford Junior, Stamford Endowed School, and located a couple of miles from the town is Copthill Independent Day School & Nursery.
