Gainsborough Old Hall is a medieval manor house in Lincolnshire, the surviving structures having been built by Sir Thomas Burgh II in the late fifteenth century. The hall was the seat of the Burghs from 1430 until 1596, and then sold to the merchant Hickman family, who resided there until around 1730.
Over the next two centuries the building was leased for various purposes – a fascinating mix of residential use, workshops and businesses, a theatre space and civic institutions. Throughout it has been intimately connected to the town of Gainsborough and is currently managed by English Heritage.
