All Saints' Church, Stamford is a parish church in the Church of England, situated in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.

History[edit]

A Stamford church is mentioned in the Domesday Book. None of the original church is still in existence. There is a very small amount of 12th-century stonework, but the bulk of the church dates from the 13th century.

Extensive additions were made by the Browne family in the 15th century.[1] John Browne, Merchant of the Staple of Calais, funded the 15th-century construction. His son, William, Mayor of the Calais Staple, funded and built the steeple.[2] Various members of the Browne family are the only people buried inside the church. William Stukeley was vicar from 1730 to 1747.

Organ[edit]

The organ was built in 1916 by James Binns.[3]
