A narrow, 3-storey building Goltho Hall was drawn by Nattes for Joseph Banks in 1800, but this was demolished soon after.

This was one of a succession of halls occupied by the Grantham family and later, through marriage, the Mainwarings and Burtons.

The image here is of the present hall built in 1900 for William Fitzwilliam Burton; it probably contains elements of the older building.

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 2', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.

This redundant church stands isolated in a field and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

Although some of the brick bonds are similar to those of Tattershall Castle, the roof timber joints have been dated to post - 1500 and it is possible that it was rebuilt when the Grantham family bought the estate in 1530.

"The nave of the church was built in about 1530 by the Grantham family of Goltho Hall (now demolished), and the chancel was added in about 1600.

Alterations and additions were made in the early 18th century and in the late 19th century.

The church was severely damaged by fire on 21 October 2013, leaving only the walls and bellcote standing, the most likely cause being a lightning strike"

"The charming red-brick chapel of St George stands alone amid acres of corn and oilseed rape with only a few trees for company.

It is situated beside one of Lincolnshire's lost villages - an old Saxon settlement long since buried.

The name 'Goltho'; is said to be Saxon for 'where the marigolds grow"

A notice, displayed on the fencing, stated that the Churches Conservation Trust was "in the process of taking advice regarding the long term future of the church".
