Nettleham Hall, Gates

These highly decorated gates (regrettably in a poor state and target of recent graffiti) were bought by John Hood from St. Peter at Arches church, High Street, Lincoln prior to its demolition in 1856.

They date from about 1720 and were designed by Francis or William Smith.
The piers and wall were added about 1890.

The gates became the grand entrance to Hood's residence, Nettleham Hall, which burnt down in 1935.

There are small elements of Saxon and Norman work in the church, but it is principally Early English, thirteenth centruy, with a Perpendicular clerestory.

The chancel was restored and lengthened by Bodley and Garner in 1882.

In the churchyard of All Saints, Nettleham, close to the wall by the Beck, is this badly worn gravestone.

It is has a carved angel head and reads "Tho. Gardiner Post Boy of Lincoln Barbarously Murdered by Isaac Tho. Hallay Jan 3 1732 aged 19

This was not the only murder committed by the Hallay brothers. They were duly executed for their crimes.

Several other borough police forces used to exist in the county, but these were eventually combined with the Lincolnshire force.

Under the Police Act 1946, Boston Borough Police and Grantham Borough Police were merged, while Lincoln City Police and Grimsby Borough Police were absorbed under the Police Act 1964.

"It was built in 1722 as a private house for Gentleman John Smith and became licensed in 1793.

It was the home of Nettleham Manor Court and also a gaol for many years.

During alterations in the 1950's a particular bulge in a wall was discovered to be a perfectly formed bread oven.

A central venetian window in the first floor is an outstanding piece of 18th Century architecture"
