These are the remains of a Premonstratensian abbey that was founded in 1154-5 by Ralph de Haya. After the Lincolnshire Rising of 1536, the abbot and 6 of the canons, were executed. The Lincolnshire Rising was a protest against Henry VIII's Dissolution of the monasteries. The abbey was suppressed in 1537. In the 17th century the site was reoccupied by a house and gardens.
