A visit to Lincolnshire

Temple Bruer Tower

This impressive structure stands alone in a farm-yard in the wide open landscape of North Kesteven, Lincolnshire.  We discovered it  on a mission to assess a shepherd's hut for restoration (which sadly turned out to be a hen house!)  Happily on the way home we found Temple Bruer - one of the few Knights Templar sites with any remaining buildings.  Dating from the 12th Century, the income from the extensive sheep walks  then surrounding it, bankrolled the Knights Templar when fighting as far afield as the Holy Land.

 Perhaps there was a shepherd's hut here as well ... just not quite as grand.
