NOTES: This late Elizabethan mansion was built in 1585-1600 for Thomas Tailor, registrar to the Bishop of Lincoln. In 1761, the owner Sir John Hussey Delaval remodelled a number of rooms in the house, including the entrance hall, drawing room, state bedrooms, the main staircase and the long gallery which extends the length of the west front on the second floor. The alterations were carried out by local carpenter Thomas Lumby.
