This simple and rather plain church sits in "St Martins Without", on the hill going out of Stamford. Its lack of ornate decoration is compensated for by the quiet dignity of this holy space, which is used for concerts as well as worship

This 15th century church houses the tombs of William Cecil chief advisor and secretary of state to Elizabeth I plus various tombs and monuments to other family members. Quite sombre inside but some lovely carvings and stained glass windows give a real sense of history.

I've visited this church several times and I've never found it open. This time I made a beeline behind the church and across to the second churchyard to view the gravestone of Daniel Lambert, then the largest man in England.

This church is about 800 years old and in surprising good condition. It also has an attached cemetery. It is open daily.

This is one of many churches located very close together in Stamford. They are all different and have lots of history so recommend you try to visit them all.
