About St. Martins

Learn about the history of St. Martins Antiques Centre

St. Martin’s Antiques Centre was founded in March 1993, by Peter Light and is situated in the beautiful Georgian town of Stamford, Lincolnshire, which boasts over 600 grade II listed buildings, the magnificent Burghley House and a fascinating history due to its location on the route North from London.

The Centre itself trades from a building full of industrial heritage, where horse drawn carriages were manufactured in the late 1800’s, and where H J Pick ran the New Pick Motor Company from 1904. The site continued to trade as a Motor business right up to the late 1980s.
