Willingham House in North Willingham was built in 1790 for Ayscough Boucherett perhaps to the design of Robert Mitchell.

It housed German and Italian prisoners during the Second World War.

Declared unsafe, it was blown up by the Royal Engineers in 1967.

Built in 1790 near to the river Rase and in view of the Louth to Market Rasen road in North Willingham, this was the home of the Boucherett family.

Its neo-classical style, by Robert Mitchell, with Ionic portico and Coade stone capitals, was unusual for Lincolnshire.

Boucheretts were the occupants until 1905 and then the Wrights until 1962.  It was blown up in 1967.
