The Brackenbury family lived in this large house from the mid-eighteenth century for a little over 100 years.

After a succession of owners and insufficient investment its contents were sold in 1937 and the house was demolished in the 1970s.

More details about this house and its owners can be found in T R Leach and R Pacey's book, 'Lost Lincolnshire Country Houses: Volume 2', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.
