Glimpse history through old images of Horncastle in Lincolnshire, England.

Tea Pot Hall in 1938

Tea Pot Hall in Horncastle was last lived in by a family in the 1920s. Rumoured to be a seventeenth century building, it was destroyed by fire not long after this film was made.

Downstairs, there was just one room. The room in the loft was accessed by a ladder.

No one seems sure why the triangular house was built this way, but it attracted painters and photographers several times over its long life.
