Nettleham Hall Gates

These highly decorated gates (regrettably in a poor state and target of recent graffiti) were bought by John Hood from St. Peter at Arches church, High Street, Lincoln prior to its demolition in 1856.

They date from about 1720 and were designed by Francis or William Smith.
The piers and wall were added about 1890.

The gates became the grand entrance to Hood's residence, Nettleham Hall, which burnt down in 1935.

There are small elements of Saxon and Norman work in the church, but it is principally Early English, thirteenth centruy, with a Perpendicular clerestory.

The chancel was restored and lengthened by Bodley and Garner in 1882.

Following the fire of 1969 which destroyed the chancel ceiling, it was renewed in line with Bodley and Garner's designs of the 1880s, but using brighter colours.

The Old School at Nettleham, founded in 1856 as a National School, is now used for community purposes.

It comprised one hall which could be divided for classrooms, and one smaller classroom (now a kitchen).

All Saints' church suffered a serious fire which affected the north aisle roof and much of the chancel.  The east window was badly damaged.

A new east window was designed by John Hayward and completed in 1971.

In the churchyard of All Saints, Nettleham, close to the wall by the Beck, is this badly worn gravestone.

It is has a carved angel head and reads "Tho. Gardiner Post Boy of Lincoln Barbarously Murdered by Isaac Tho. Hallay Jan 3 1732 aged 19

This was not the only murder committed by the Hallay brothers. They were duly executed for their crimes.
