Stamford is located in Lincolnshire's south Kesteven district in England. In 1967 it was established as a conservation area and has over 600 building on the historical listings which is over half of all the building in the county. A Cetiosarurus exoniensis sauropod dinosaur specimen was discovered there in the Williamson Cliffe quarry by Bill Boddington in June of 1968. The quarry is located close to the Great Casterton. It was dated to be over 170 million yeas old coming sometime from the Aalenian or Bajocian times of the Jurassic era. It was dubbed the Rutland Dinosaur.

The towns original heritage is Danish from a settlement that was established there where the Welland can be crossed with a ford or by bridge. It was one of ten Danish boroughs that did not become a county town. It was a pottery center at first making Stamford Ware but by the Middle Ages it had been taken over by the wool industry. It is world known for it's Stanford cloth a woolen cloth and for its production of wool itself. The Stamford Museum is the home to a wonderful example of this cloth.

There were once great walls surrounding the city but not much of them still remain today. It was set up as a port inland for the Great North Road as well as the Roman road Ermine Street that goes near the town where the River Welland is forded. There are many historic building around this area which include the Browne's Hospital, many churches and Stamford School buildings. Stamford school was a public school started in 1532.

There is an example of this cloth, also called Haberget, in Stamford Museum. Stamford was a walled town but only a very small portion of the walls now remain. Stamford became an inland port on the Great North Road (also part of the Roman road Ermine Street - it passes nearby the town - where it forded the River Welland). Notable buildings in the town include the mediaeval Browne's Hospital, churches and the buildings of Stamford School, a public school founded in 1533. In 1075 there had been a Norman castle erected but it was torn down by 1484. The site was abandoned until it was constructed over with a bus station and a modern housing development in the late 20th Century.
