Lincolnshire is a county rich in history that dates back thousands of years and one of the many historical buildings is the charming Hussey Tower.

Situated in Boston, the medieval tower was constructed around 1450 as part of a manorial home for a member of Henry VIII's court, Sir John Hussey, and was used as a place to stay for those of high status in society. An important figure in Boston's history, John was part of the Justice of Peace for Boston as well as a tax collector.

The architect of Hussey Tower took inspiration from nearby Tattershall Castle and visitors may notice many similarities between them, including the design and use of red brick. Impressively these bricks were made by hand from Lincolnshire's very own red clay.

Currently, Hussey Tower has no roof and has much damage, but it's currently being managed by Heritage Lincolnshire which has hopes in the future to return the tower to its former glory.

There are two open days annually in the spring and summer for visitors to explore the interior. For general viewing of Hussey Tower whilst it's locked, the site is open from dawn to dusk. Just outside Boston Town Centre, there are plenty of car parks to walk from to reach Hussey Tower. Hussey Tower is accessible 24hrs a day.
