The Red Hall at Bourne
Day 2 - Leaving Grimsthorpe we proceeded to Bourne to find the Red House.

The Red Hall at Bourne

Bourne is said to have the purest water in England. The parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul was once the church of an Arrouaisian priory founded here by the Augustinians in 1138.

The Red Hall is in Bourne and was built for an Elizabethan gentleman in red brick with ashlar quoins, hence its name. The house is many gabled and has a fine Tuscan porch. It became the stationmaster's house and ticket office for the railway in 1860 but is currently a community and functions centre. The outside can be closely inspected as it is set on a lawn and can be walked around.
