Description

The surviving building was a wing of a medieval rural palace of the Bishops of Lincoln. The estate included fishponds and a deer park. In 1600 this building became an almshouse for 12 poor men, two women and a warden. Homes for pensioners were provided for over 300 years. You can see the bedemen's rooms, which though small each had a window and fireplace, and, on the first floor, the great chamber with a fine timber cornice to the ceiling.show more
