Tues 24 Sep, Stamford Theatre talks
The Making of Georgian Stamford
Philippa explores Stamford during the reigns of George I to George IV, from 1714 – 1830. She looks at the way the town expanded during these 116 years, and how and why it evolved from a small market town to a thriving and important coaching centre on one of the most important routes in the country. The effects of communications, modes of transport, trade, entertainment and new styles of buildings on the town are all interconnected, and Philippa tries to unravel this remarkable transformation.
