Stamford LincolnshireStamford is in the county of Lincolnshire, a rural area of rolling countryside extending to the coast with long sweeping beaches and popular seaside resorts. There are quaint country market towns, imposing medieval churches, castles and appealing villages. Lincoln itself is the region's outstanding attraction, its cathedral is the third largest church in England. The flat extensive fenlands of Lincolnshire are home to one of the last areas in the country to rely on wind power in its mills, where the remains of more than 130 windmills can be found. The beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds with open rolling hills and steep deep-sided valleys are a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
