Some locations we don’t tend to give the exact spots to where to find them and that isn’t because we are mean, it is simply to secure and remain their slow decaying state.
This is one of them locations.
It is thought to date from around 1868 and is a Grade II listed country house (listed in November 1966).
It is set in 1.82 acres of protected woodland on the edge of a picturesque valley in the Lincolnshire Wolds. It is believed to have been built for, and possibly designed by, Christopher Turnor (of Stoke Rochford and Panton), an English Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1841 to 1847. The Manor House was subsequently occupied by Charles Rowell Fieldsend in 1871.
Later it was part of the Sutton family, renowned estate owners in the local area. It was then sold by Sir Richard Sutton in December 2008 for £225,000 to Mr Hills, who then put it up for auction. It remained unsold, maybe due to the maintenance costs involved and the renovation costs. It again failed to sell at auction in 2013. It remains in a dilapidated state, on the market with Savills with an asking price of £225,000.
