History of Hussey Tower

Hussey Tower is all that remains of Hussey Hall, a 15th-century tower house, built by the wealthy landowner Richard Bennington.

The Hussey Tower is a three-story brick structure with windows framed in stone and scars in the masonry that show where the range of buildings joined it.

Hussey Tower looks like a miniature version of Tattershall Castle, perhaps because Bennington 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 Bricks.

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.
