A large coaching inn (SK 967900) was built of stone in Spital on the Street a few hundred yards north of Caenby Corner on Ermine Street (present A15) in the 18th century.

It provided accommodation for travellers and stabling for horses using this main north-south turnpike from Lincoln to the Humber.

In later years it became the simple (though rather large) farmhouse for the Home Farm.
