This house was built for Sir Rowland Winn in the 1770s, with enlargements in 1822 and 1862 (possibly by William Fowler of Winterton).

In 1885 Rowland Winn MP (grandson of Sir Rowland) was created Baron St Oswald and he occupied the house until his death in 1893.

The Winn family sold the contents of the house in 1928; a fire destroyed much of the house in 1933; and it was finally demolished during World War 2.

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 ornate nave and aisles of St Batholomew’s, with flowing tracery in the windows and battlements and pinnacles – as seen in this drawing – all date from the late-Victorian reconstruction of 1883.

Externally the church of St Bartholomew, Appleby, dates from the restoration of 1883.

The chancel, though, is Perpendicular whilst the nave arcades are from the Decorated period.

The stained glass from Brussels in the east window was praised by Pevsner.

The tower of St Bartholomew's is thought to be older than the nave and chancel - perhaps thirteenth century.

The bell openings were created during restoration in the Victorian period.
