This was a seat of the Bolle family built in the sixteenth century with stepped chimney stack and crenellations along the east front.

At the south end of the east front there is a moulded brick doorway (now blocked) with a two-centred arch and a square surround.

In the chancel is the memorial to Sir John Bolle (d 1606) of the nearby Manor House and later of Thorpe Hall, Louth.

A well-known tale describes Sir John’s encounter with his ‘Spanish Lady’!
