Bloxholm Hall was built in the mid-seventeenth century in Artisan Mannerism style.

It was altered after purchase by the Duchess of Rutland and again in the 1820s by Lewis Vulliamy.

The house was demolished in the twentieth century.

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.

St Mary's, Bloxholm, is not a church likely to be stumbled upon but is worth seeking out.

The tower is Perpendicular, the arcades from around 1300.

General Manners restored the church in the Gothick style in 1812, which included the plaster vaulting in the nave and chancel.
