    This is my first post on here, been exploring for a while now, hope you enjoy.

    Here we have Nocton Hall, solo visit and was the last of 3 sites I visited that day. Looking at other posts I thought it was just a bare shell, how wrong was I.
    So on arrival I could see lots of new fencing, found entry and was in. Had a good look round and throughly enjoyed myself, a nice relaxed visit.

    History

    Nocton Hall is a historic Grade II listed building in the village of Nocton, in Lincolnshire, England. The plaque on the north face of the Hall indicates that the original building dates back to about 1530 but since then there have been two notable reconstructions. Several prominent people have been residents of the house the most notable being Frederick John Robinson, 1st Earl of Ripon who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for a short time.

    During the First World War the house was used as a convalescence home for wounded American Officers. In the Second World War the Americans again used the house as a military hospital after which it was taken over by the RAF and an extensive hospital developed in the grounds. It reverted to private use in the 1980s. In 2004 there was a major fire which left the building in a derelict state. Options are currently being considered regarding the future of the building.

    Poor Nocton, it gets worse and worse. I was here about 8 years ago now, didn't think it could get much worse.
    Really nice pics though. I hope this gets some love, it really is a gorgeous building.
