A water supply system for Gunby Hall was installed in the meadowland to the south-east in the nineteenth century.

A natural spring was piped into this small covered reservoir and then pumped to the Hall.

This charming country house was built in 1700, the 2 storey extension being added in two phases in the 19th century.

For generations, Gunby Hall was the seat of the Massingberd family.

After narrowly escaping demolition in World War 2 (to extend a runway for an adjoining airfield), Gunby was given to the National Trust, who now care for the Hall and gardens.

The unremarkable church of St Peter at Gunby is close to SE corner of the Hall and a considerable distance from the main road (A158). 

This is the north elevation of the building where there is an accretion of ugly extensions which face the gardens of Gunby Hall.

St Peter's church, built by James Fowler of Louth from 1868-70, looks out on extensive parkland - the medieval village site - to the south of Gunby Hall.

View from the south-east.  Trees and shrubs encroach on the churchyard and mask the building.

However, the graveyard has a fine display of snowdrops in the early spring.

Like many churches associated with country houses, St Peter's at Gunby is located near to the house but a considerable distance from the village houses.
