I wasn't sure about Nettleham Hall to begin with because I heard it's just ruins and not worth it, but it's not a bad place for a nice chilled out explore. It was impossible to find on Google maps but once I got to the gates I knew where I was. It would have been a nice place to visit when there was more of it left. It does have a kind of Tomb Raiderish feeling to it though. Although I found no ancient artifacts or snakes/tigers ect... Just ruins... History Lesson Nettleham hall was the home of the Hood Family, a very popular family within the village of Nettleham. The famliy decended from John Hood who was the first of the Hood family to occupy Nettleham Hall. John Hood whom accompanied General Monk from Scotland on his way to restore Charles II in January 1660. The main entrance is a magnificent set of wrought iron gates, these gates came from the demolished church of St.Peter at Arches Lincoln and were designed by Francis or William Smith circa 1720 with piers and flanking walls being dating from around 1890. The house had an underground system of tunnels to allow servants to move around the house. An old auction catalogue for the sale of the residence describes it as a charming stone built Georgian House with views of Lincoln Catherdral, it was sold with 3 acres of garden and 1,500 acres of shooting lands. Nettleham hall burnt down around 1937 in mysterious circumstances The Iron Gates Close Up of the gates Interior Walls Nature is taking over This tree coming from within the building shows how long it has been derelict Was this the old entrance? I felt like Lara Croft without boobs when I walked into this room. This building would have looked incredible from the inside years ago. This one's a bit dark The tunnel/cellar/basement part. There were candles inside on the concrete shelves. Shame this is out of focus a bit An old chimney? Not the nicest wallpaper I've ever seen... A cottage window Window Number 2 As always, thank you for taking time to read my report.
