Much of this house was built in 1805 by Sir Montague Cholmeley but then replaced by a Victorian house in Elizabethan style.

It was requisitioned during World War 2 and the resulting damage made the house inhabitable.

It was subsequently demolished.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1885 states :-

"EASTON is a township, on the east of the Great North road - Easton Hall, the beautiful seat of Sir Hugh Arthur Henry Cholmeley bart. D.L., J.P. is a noble mansion of stone, in the Elizabethan style, almost wholly rebuilt since 1805, and situated in the midst of a well-wooded park, through which the river Witham runs.

The magnificent entrance hall contains an extensive display of mediaeval armour and weapons"

Easton Park, the home of the Cholmeley family, has seen three great houses but none survive today.

However, the beautiful terraced gardens, designed in the French style in the 19th century can still be seen.

This ornamental bridge crosses the Upper Witham river, which is a feature of the park.

Easton Walled Gardens are particularly well known for the winter snowdrops.

The building in the background marked as a Smithy on OS 25 inch map published 1904 - next to it there was a gasometer.
