Wall to the South of Holy Trinity Church, Tattershall - East Lindsey

The upstanding remains of the wall to the south of the Church of the Holy Trinity are believed to be part of the former Tattershall College. Of C15 or C16 origin and brick built. Previous extensive ivy growth has been checked and controlled, but vegetative growth remains intrusive. Large sections of the wall are open-jointed, and wall heads are exposed in areas. There has been historic settlement. Burrowing animals are disturbing the ground close to footings. Condition assessments have been undertaken and a repair grant funded by Historic England is now underway.
