The Turnor family of Stoke Rockford built this house in the northern part of their Lincolnshire estate in 1775.

On the site of an earlier mansion, it was designed by John Carr of York.

Panton was sold by the Turnors in 1917 and was then occupied by a Franciscan college.

The house was demolished in 1964 but the fine stables of the 1770s remain.

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

The Turnor family (principal home Stoke Rockford) owned Panton Hall and the associated estate in the Wragby area until 1917. From time to time it was occupied by one of the family.

Edmund Turnor (d.1903) was the last head of the family to reside there. His widow, Lady Mary Katherine Turnor, stayed in the house until the end of the Second World War.

Between 1919 and the late 1930s it housed a Franciscan college and friary and the west wing drawing room was converted into the chapel seen here.
