Over the summer, residents and visitors to Kirton will have noticed that there has been a lot of activity at the Old Kings Head.
The architects have been investigating the overall condition of the building, in order to discover the type of works which need to be done to make it safe and secure. This investigation involves looking at the walls, windows, doors, chimneys, roofs and other areas of the building, and making a photographic record of all parts, both inside and out. From this information, we'll understand the structure of the building much better and be able to recommend what needs to be done to bring the building back into its new thriving use!
We've also had the overgrown vegetation from the back gardens cleared and we can now see all of the brickwork to the back of the building and appreciate the size of the site.
The Old Kings Head also had a prominent position, and attracted a lot of interest, at Heritage Lincolnshire’s marquee at the Heckington Show in July. The first public tours of the building are taking place over Heritage Open Days. Spaces on this booked up very quickly and Heritage Lincolnshire is going to arrange another open day to ensure all those that were not able to book on, and many more, can have a look round this fascinating property.
