This ancient manor house, demolished in 1898, was part medieval, part Tudor, with eighteenth century alterations.

It began life as a monastic grange (of Barlings Abbey) and was occupied first by the Granthams.

After a succession of owners of some significance it became a farmhouse.

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.
