Hussey Tower is all that remains of Hussey Hall, a 15th
century tower house, built by the wealthy landowner Richard Benyngton.
The Hussey Tower is a three storey brick structure with
windows framed in stone and scars in the masonry that show where the range of buildings joined
Hussey Tower looks like a miniature version of Tattershall Castle, perhaps
because Benyngton was a friend of Ralph Cromwell, who built Tattershall. Hussey Tower may have been
built by Peter Lyndon, a German, who had worked at Tattershall. Both structures use Boston
The Hussey family owned the house in the 16th century, but
Lord Hussey lost both his house and his head following the Lincolnshire Rising in 1536. Ownership
of the Hall passed to the Crown, and then to the Borough. Today only the ruined tower remains.
