Formerly known as Stamford Town to distinguish it from the now closed Stamford East, Stamford station lies 12.5 miles west of Peterborough in the county of Lincolnshire. Originally built in 1846, the Mock Tudor style station building still stands to this day, and is now Grade II-listed. Serving Birmingham to the west and Stansted and Cambridge to the east, it has undergone several major redevelopments throughout the years. The latest overhaul in 2008 extended the length of both platforms and improved the platform canopy. Stamford has a rich history, with a variety of 17th and 18th century architecture, as well as five medieval church parishes. The Stamford Mid-Lent Fair – one of the largest in the country – has been running since the Middles Ages, and was even referenced in William Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part 2. The fair takes place throughout town and runs for a full week in mid-March.
