Somerton Castle and outbuildings, Castle Lane, Boothby Graffoe - North Kesteven

Early C14 castle with C17 farmhouse and later outbuildings. The extensive property had fallen into disrepair and the farm buildings were largely redundant. A new owner is undertaking a major repair and conversion project. This has been informed by thorough surveys and archaeological investigations, and has been advised by the Local Planning Authority and Historic England. The repair and refurbishment of the house has been undertaken and repairs to the ruined northeast and southwest towers are nearly complete.
