These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
This map captures most of the historic town of Stamford, of which Hoskins wrote in 1951 "If there is a more beautiful town in the whole of England, I have yet to see it". Coverage stretches from Austin Street and St Peter's Street eastward to include all the town centre and about a mile beyond; and from Northfields southward to Burghley Lodges and part of Burghley Park. Features on the map include the railway with LMS and LNER stations; River Welland, St Mary's Street, Broad Street, High Street, St Paul's Street, Saint Martin's, cattle market, infirmary, St Leonard's Priory, Poor Law Institution, Rutland Engineering Works, Hudds Mill, Newstead Mill (near top right corner of map), numerous churches, Barnhill House, and individual houses etc. We include a directory of private inhabitants from a 1905 directory. Note that a good portion of the map is actually in Northamptonshire (Sheet 2.05) including the LNER terminus.
