In September 1884 it became Tallington Board School, administered by Tallington School Board, formed in that year.

The school was enlarged in 1896.

It became Tallington Council School in 1903 and was a junior school by 1938, with senior pupils attending schools in Stamford.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of St. Lawrence, originally erected in the 12th century, is an ancient cruciform structure of Barnack stone, partly in the Early English and Decorated styles, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, transepts and a western tower containing 3 bells, and there is an ancient sanctus bell in a bell-cote:

the church had formerly a spire, which was destroyed by lightning, August 13th, 1762"

"the church was restored in 1879 at a cost of £1,000, when the ancient oak screen was re-erected at the west end of the nave"

Image shows remains of a lock discovered 1998 in Heron's Close near Saint Laurence's Church.

"Stamford Canal, now disused, is one of the earliest post-Roman canals in England.

It opened in 1670, around 100 years before the start of the Industrial Revolution"

"It was part of the Welland Navigation in Lincolnshire.

First authorised in 1571, during the reign of Elizabeth I, construction did not start until 1664, under powers granted in 1620 and ratified by James I.

It ran for 9.5 miles (15.3 km) from Stamford to Market Deeping and had 12 locks"

"It contributed to the wealth of Stamford, allowing barley to be transported to the town for malting"
