Tattershall College


Tattershall College is the ruin of a grammar school built in the late 15th century.

It is one of a complex of buildings built by Ralph, Lord Cromwell, including Tattershall Castle, the collegiate church and the almshouses.

Following its use as a grammar school for tenants of Lord Cromwell and his descendants, the building was converted to use as a brewery in the late 18th century.
