Stamford is a town on the River Welland in Lincolnshire, England, 92 miles (148 km) north of London on the A1. The population at the 2001 census was 21,800 including the adjacent parish of St Martin’s Without. The town has 17th and 18th-century stone buildings, older timber-framed buildings and five medieval parish churches and In 2013, Stamford was rated the best place to live by the Sunday Times.
For over 600 years Stamford was the site of the Stamford Bull Run festival, held annually on 13 November until 1839. According to local tradition, the custom was started by William de Warenne, 5th Earl of Surrey, after he saw two bulls fighting in the meadow beneath his castle viewpoint. Some butchers came to part the combatants and one of the bulls ran into the town. The earl mounted his horse and rode after the animal; he enjoyed the sport so much that he gave the meadow in which the fight began to the butchers of Stamford on condition that they should provide a bull, to be run in the town every 13 November, for ever after.
