Located at the St John’s church end of the high street, Brook Taverner occupies the store space previously inhabited by Ponden Mill and more recently, Steamer Trading Cookshop. Situated immediately next to the small alleyway of Wellington Lane, you will find us directly opposite Boots and Lloyds Bank, and in-between FatFace and New Look.
Stamford is most easily reachable from the A1, where the A6121 can be accessed. From here it is a three-minute drive east towards the heavily sign posted Stamford. Passing the new housing development on your left, continue down the single carriage way and bear right at the mini roundabout (2nd exit) – the spire of All Saints church will inform you that you’re heading in the right direction.
One of the pleasantries of Stamford town centre is the lack of cars and pedestrian safety. This means that the several car parks available are located just away from the high street – approximately a 4 minute walk away from our store. The closest free parking is situated in the Waitrose on West Street, although note that this is for paying customers. Other carparks can be found on Bath Row, Scotgate and Saint Leonard’s Street (all £1.70 for 2 hours) – all are a suitable walking distance to store.
Via train, Stamford can be accessed directly from Birmingham New Street, and the nearby city of Cambridge provides a great changeover point as trains from here are regular. Once at the station in Stamford, simply head north through the picturesque River Welland and Town Meadows (green space) then head towards the spire of All Saints Church. When you reach the zebra crossing, head past the Golden Fleece through the pedestrianised street of Horse Shoe Lane which will bring you out opposite the High Street – we are then the 7th shop on the left hand side.Back to top

Voted the best place to live by the Sunday Times in 2013, Stamford is home to numerous 17th and 18th century buildings in addition to timber-framed structures and no less than five medieval parish churches. With a rich Roman heritage and a history heavily intertwined with the town of Lincoln, located just 50 miles away, the town has a history of producing wool and pottery. Remains of a once great stone walls that enclosed the city are still visible and the town has many references throughout history, from its Roman foundations, Danish settlements and middle-aged references that can be found in Shakespeare’s Henry IV.Back to top
