Church of St Nicholas
Stanford-on-Avon is a hamlet and parish in Northamptonshire, adjacent to the border with Leicestershire. It lies next to the River Avon, which here forms the border between the two counties. On the Leicestershire side of the river is Stanford Hall, a historic house. Stanford Reservoir is one mile north of the village.
The church contains the oldest metal organ pipes surviving in Britain. The upper part of the organ-case appears to be related to the Dallam organ at Tewkesbury Abbey, and therefore the pipes probably date from the 1630s (i.e. before the Cromwell era when many organs were destroyed).
