Rebuilt for Francis Fane in 1733 following a fire which largely destroyed the earlier house.

"Fragment of early C17 house, main block of 1733 with additions of 1784, 1802, 1840, 1894 and 1934.

1733 house probably by George Portwood of Stamford, and the porch before it, brought from Syston Park in 1934, probably by L. Vulliamy"

The wrought iron gates from 1733 are Grade: II* listed however they were badly damaged by a large vehicle on December 30th 2017.

Have since been repaired as pictured here. The Historic England listing states :-

"The design is clearly influenced by the Frenchman Tijou, and could be the work of either John Warren of Cambridge (c/f Belton gates) or else of Edward Nutt, who made similar gates at Grimsthorpe Castle in 1730"

Fulbeck, Roman greyhound brooch

This brooch is made of tinned copper alloy and was discovered at Fulbeck in 2006.

It shows a seated greyhound, and unlike many other zoomorphic brooches of the 2nd Century AD, is a realistic depiction of the animal rather than a stylised one.

Two parallels are known for this brooch, one in Syria and one in Carlisle, and it is possible that they represent special commissions, perhaps for people involved in dog breeding, hence the realistic depiction.

The church of St Nicholas, Fulbeck, lies in one of Lincolnshire's prettiest Villages together with notable Manor and House.

The tower and nave with clerestory are in the Perpendicular style whilst the arcades date from c1300.

There are many monuments to the Fane family, still resident in the village.
