Torksey Castle, Trent Side, Torksey - West Lindsey

Remains of country house of 1560 slighted in the Civil War (west wall and part of south wall remain). Major structural repairs were carried out in 1991 and a watching brief was maintained. The main structure appears stable but repairs to exposed brickwork required. Fabric and buried remains under threat from vegetation growth. A condition survey has been carried out and options for repairs, access and interpretation have been investigated.
