We just had to share these pictures, taken today by Aimee. Stamford's honey coloured limestone is really brought to life in the spring sunshine. All locally mined stone along with our traditional Collyweston Stone roofs. Collyweston is the village, just a couple of miles outside of Stamford where the stone slate was traditionally mined. There is still one working mine, recently reopened by Claude Smith Ltd. These roofs can be seen locally and in many parts of the country even the Guildhall in London and various Cambridge colleges. Stamford has a long tradition of craftsmanship - it still continues with ourselves as artisan bookbinders!
Stamford was the UK's first conservation town and many of the building in the town are grade two listed. Such a beautiful place to live!
