  1. I’ve been to Stanford bridge a couple times, the village is built around a stone bridge, obviously not the bridge from 1066, but the original bridge or Ford was on that part of the river Derwent. Standing there imagining 10,000ish men either side of that bridge looking to kill one another is certainly something.
