Gainsborough Old Hall opens its doors to welcome visitors
Visitors can take a trip back in time at the medieval manor Gainsborough Old Hall with free entry over both days of Discover Lincolnshire Weekend.
The hall is more than 500 years old and one of the UK's best preserved timber framed manor houses.
Visitors will be able to follow in the footsteps of illustrious royal visitors such as Richard III and Henry VIII, while The Mayflower Pilgrims and John Wesley also worshipped within its walls.
A trip to the venue on March 16-17 would also be an opportunity to enjoy a restored 17th century wall painting, which was lost for centuries and found beneath several layers of wall coverings when a £220,000 makeover at Gainsborough Old Hall began in 2012.

Eleven women from West Lindsey Domestic Abuse Service, who were already taking part in drop-in sewing sessions, were recruited by a community artist Ruth Pigott to create a 2.4-metre textile wall hanging based on the painting.
The wall hanging has taken pride of place in a display featuring a new information panel which explains the wall painting's conservation, a reconstruction banner showing the original colours and a documentary film about the whole project now nearing completion.
