The exhibition provides pictures, objects , maps and written histories of Stamford's links with the past and it's worth spending about an hour there. It's in the same building as the library which is very child friendly.

This is a relatively small area located in the town's library which has some interesting material relating to Stamford's history, including the famous Stamford bull run.

The heritage display is interesting and informative. I particularly enjoyed seeing the tapestry which records stamford through the ages, we had fun identifying where we had visited and what was still to see.
