Syston Hall, one of several Lincolnshire properties owned by members of the widespread Thorold family, was built in 1768-69.

The main block was of three stories and seven bays, the centre three bays forming a canted bay.

The house became unoccupied in 1912 and was demolished in 1928.

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 1', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.

Thoroughly restored in 1861-2, St Mary’s, Syston has a Norman tower (with Perpendicular top), chancel arch and north arcade.

The chancel is dated 1702 but contains two Norman windows.

There are monuments to the Thorolds of Syston whose great house is long gone, stained glass by Ward & Hughes and Kempe plus furnishings by Sir Ninian Comper.
