Stamford (2), Lincolnshire. Location map
 
  High Street Saint Martin's, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England   Stamford, Lincolnshire.

This is the High Street, Stamford St. Martins Without, which is not the same as High Street, Stamford. Confused? Of course you are.

The George Hotel is on the right-hand side with its sign suspended over the road and the tower of St. Martins Church, from which the area gets its name, can be seen up the hill.

The exact age of The George is not known but it is probable that the original inn, now extended to include buildings on either side, is about 1000 years old.

  View of Barn Hill and All Saints Church, Stamford, Lincolnshireshire, England   Stamford Lincolnshire.

The ancient cobbled street of Barn Hill runs down into All Saints Square where the spire of All Saints Church can be seen. Stamford's largest residence is in this street.

  High Street, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England   Stamford, Lincolnshire.

High Street in the main part of Stamford, north of the river is not to be confused with High Street, Stamford St. Martins Without which is south of the river. This High Street is now pedestrianised and runs west into St. Pauls Street.

This, I would imagine, is the main shopping centre.

  Cheyne Lane, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England   Stamford, Lincolnshire.

You want 'narrow' - Stamford does 'narrow'. This is Cheyne Lane which runs from High Street down to St. Mary's Street and, in spite of its diminutive width, houses a number of places providing food and drink.

One of the eating places in Cheyne Lane is Mr Pang's Chinese Restaurant which is one of the nicest restaurants that we have experienced.
