This one, the leading church in Stamford, dates from as early as XIth century and has undergone many architectural changes since then. At XVth century, when War of the Roses, Stamford suffered wide destruction and the church was not an exception but, from then on, with increasing local prosperity, it regained splendor and many works were done on it. Rich wool merchants from Browne family were especially related with this change rebuilding and embellishing the place in an English Perpendicular style and they are regarded with some brasses and stone marks in here. It's nor an spectacular building not has such a wonderful tower as St. Mary's but it's a very nice one. Placed in the core of Stamford, it is undoubtedly a must-see when being here due to its quiet beauty and historic importance.
