Harrington Hall

A country house built in the late 16th century.


Harrington Hall was built probably around 1535. This date is said to come from a radiocarbon date for a beam. The house was rebuilt in 1673 and embellished later.
The hall is associated with Tennyson; here he wrote poetry to Rosa Baring (Maud) who lived at the hall. The hall was badly damaged by fire during restoration work on the night of 4th November 1991 (See Lincolnshire Echo cutting in the HER parish file). {1}{2}
