    Had a day trip out to Lincolnshire with two non - members. The weather was really good and it felt like summer!

    Down the A1 we nearly had a serious collision with some guy who just pulled out in front of us! Anyway, the first stop was Sleaford Bass Maltings. We couldn't gain access and we were gutted (any tips would be greatly appreciated!). Not wanting to waste the day we headed to Nocton for the second site we had planned.

    I have done the hall and the hospital as two separate reports as the hall itself has a history that spans far further than the hospital.

    Oh and I finally have a proper camera so no more Galaxy s4 shots :D

    Goodbye :(

    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. 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.
