Stamford (5), Lincolnshire. Location map
 
  Narrow alley, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England   Stamford, Lincolnshire.

Old Barn Passage connects St. Mary's Street to Bath Row and includes a number of eating places. I don't know what it is about Stamford but it seems that the narrower the alley the more restaurants and pubs they stuff into it.

We thought that the area either side of St. Peter's Street, being well away from the town centre, wouldn't have very much of interest but we were mistaken. There are a number of old buildings, quaint streets and other points of interest in the area such as Kings Mill Street shown here.

It is certainly worth while wandering around that area.
