The substantial house of the early seventeenth century was rebuilt in the first quarter of the eighteenth.

It was built for the Pelhams, owners of the largest Lincolnshire estate.

Substantial extensions were built in the nineteenth century, as shown in this photograph.

More details about this house and its owners can be found in T R Leach's book, 'Lincolnshire Country Houses and their Families: Part 2', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.

All Saints, Brocklesby, is a substantial building close to Brocklesby Hall, home of the Pelhams.

It is largely built of ironstone and dates from the Decorated period.

Inside are alabaster memorials to early Pelhams.

How one can gain access to this church is a mystery.

Built about 1848 for the MS and L Railway Company, this Brocklesby Station was conveniently close to Brocklesby Hall, the seat of the Earl of Yarborough who was then the company chairman.

In April 1849 Prince Albert arrived here by royal train to be the guest of the Earl before continuing to Grimsby next day, with great ceremony, to lay the foundation stone of the new dock.

The station closed in the 1990s. Photo taken from road bridge over the railway.
