Lincoln Lane Farmhouse, Sixhills
A Novel Investigative Methodology

The SLHA Building Recording Group (RUBL) studied this Grade II listed building between 2016 and 2018 and revealed its origins as a sixteenth-century timber-framed Hall House with possible links to Sixhills Priory. Unexpectedly, it was also found to contain floor joists of re-used 12th century timbers.
X-Ray fluorescence was used to measure surface levels of lead on these early timbers in a series of experiments designed to clarify their possible original use.
