    Default Torksey Castle - Linc's


    Torksey Castle is a manor house or hall, located in the village of Torksey, Lincolnshire. Built in the 16th century on the banks of the river Trent. At present the building is on the Buildings at Risk Register.



    The Tudor hall was built by the Jermyn family of Suffolk, it is thought to have been a gift to an elder son, but only lasted for about 100 years until the civil war. It is not known why the Hall was built in close to the river although it was constructed on a bank, not as close to the river as it is today. Sadly the Hall is prone to flood as it now sits on the wrong side of the modern flood bank.

    This is great, Neo. Love the brickwork and the shaped stones.
    Nice comparison shot between the old and the new. :)

    What does he know? I guess so, although it is relative.

    Some great shots there Neo,

    Liked the chimney one too - I had no idea that it was there - must have been a pretty grand house in its heyday.

    A very nice location. I like the early brickwork, there are lovely colours there. What is the Power Station in the background?
    :)

    James - think it is either West Burton or Cottam.
