Tattershall College

Tattershall, Lincoln, Lincolnshire LN4 4JD
2 Sleaford Road Tattershall England LN4 4LG GB

At the remains of this once two-story high mid-15th century grammar school you will still see a fine example of perpendicular Gothic architecture. You will also see an early example of red brick, which was only used for the finest of buildings.

The school, which taught church choristers and the sons of local tenants, was founded in 1417 by Lord Cromwell, but in the eighteenth century this red-bricked building was converted into a malt house and granary before being abandoned. Tattershall College came into state guardianship in 1972 and now is under the wings of the English Heritage.

It is a place worth visiting alongside other medieval buildings in the area.
