Billingborough Hall was built by William Toller between 1611 and 1620 and later enlarged by his son Richard.

It is said that some of the stone used in its construction came from nearby Sempringham Abbey.

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.

The earliest parts of this U-shaped house date from the mid C17; substantial additions and alterations were made in the mid C18 and late C19.

It is constructed of coursed limestone rubble with limestone ashlar. The roofs have plain tiles with stone coped gables.
