    Little is known about this once great hall,just a few dates and infamous people who once lived there. Sadly now in ruins with trees and plants growing in and around the hall, some of these plants such as the ivy have saved some of the walls from collapsing. Once forgotten and thought to be destroyed, despite the fire in 1937, the hall hangs on though no windows or roof protect it from the elements.

    John Hood of Nettleham Hall, in January 1660 accompanied General Monk from Scotland on his way to restore Charles II.

    It is claimed that the iron gates to the property were once the entrance to the churchyard at St. Peter-at-Arches, Lincoln and the gate and gate piers were built circa 1720. The design and construction attributed to Francis or William Smith of Warwick and were relocated when the church was demolished. They are in very poor condition, suffering from badly corroded ironwork and displaced stonework.

    Site> Mostly a ruin now, although worthy of a visit for photos...
