Stamford, Lincolnshire Tom Ough, travel columnist for The Telegraph, wrote, “Pride runs through Stamford like fat through a well marbled steak.” Despite the ironic tone of his column, the citizens of Stamford have just cause for pride. They have one of the highest densities of listed buildings in Britain (including a telephone box) but have succumbed to neither the siren call of rampant tourism nor to rampant redevelopment. The town feels like a refuge from modernity and commercialism without sacrificing the benefits of privilege. We, in turn, enjoyed the privilege of their resolve.
