Features of Interest
-  Whilst Stamford Bridge is famed for King Harold's victory over the Vikings in 1066, the site of the battle is to the east of the village.  There is a memorial stone in the grass bank near the Corn Mill.  Round the back of the restaurant a footpath leads along the riverbank to the site of the old wooden bridge where the legend of the Norwegian Giant was born.  For more information about Stamford Bridge visit the Tourist Information Centre over the river in the Weir Caravan Park.
