The Making of Stamford

£6.99

Product description

A colleague of mine recently described Stamford as "a bottleneck - attractive, to be sure, but a bottle-neck". To most people who have travelled up or down the main road to the north before opening of the Stamford by-pass in 1961, this must have been the impression given by the town. A very attractive town, whose stone houses stand tightly packed together in its narrow streets, which the largest lorries had difficulty in negotiating; a town which invited one to spend longer there, although traffic conditions prevented this. Now that all has changed, and one can stop Stamford and adrime the buildings without risking one's neck, we can see all the more how attractive the town is. Some foxing to front board. Signed by a previous owner.
