Torksey Castle, Trent Side, Torksey - West Lindsey

Remains of country house of 1560 slighted in the Civil War. The 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 was carried out several years ago and options for repairs, access and interpretation have been investigated. No further progress has been made.
