Did you know? Gunby Hall

Did you know will be a series of blogs based on historical buildings and areas in and around the Lincolnshire Coast..

Just a few miles away from Skegness is the historical Gunby Hall! Today, Gunby Hall is now open to the public where they hold events such as Easter Egg hunts, days out and lovely walks.

Gunby Hall was finished in 1700 for Sir William Massingberd and after many years of the house being passed to the next generation, the house was donated to the National Trust in 1944. 

What is super interesting about Gunby Hall is the alleged murders that took place there, during Sir William Massingberd's residency. A love story turning into a tragedy, with a servant and the daughter of William falling in love and hoping to run away. But Sir William Massingberd's had other plans, and apparently shot them both!
