This early nineteenth century house, in yellow brick, was built for the Westons when Rev Charles Fleetwood Weston was head of the family.

The Chatterton family were its occupants in the 20th century but it fell into a bad state of repair and was demolished in 1964.

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.

St Margaretís is a worn ironstone church with a low tower and lies almost hidden by trees on the edge of the Wolds.

The building has 13th century features, but has undergone many later alterations, especially in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

Monuments within include a fine 13th century effigy of a knight.
