The magnificent great hall
Ceiling detail of the great hall
Lisa in the Buttery...not where butter is produced but rather where the butts of beer and ale and wine are kept for serving in the great hall, having been brought up from the cellars and where the butt...ler has them under lock and key
An enormous medieval kitchen
Across the road from the Old Gainsborough Hall is the church of All Saints. The former medieval church had fallen into disrepair so was rebuilt in 1748 keeping the medieval tower but adding a classical revivalist nave.
Classical interior with stunning pastel coloured plasterwork
With our visit to the Old Hall done we wandered back through the rather sorry and tired town, had lunch at 'Spoons and walked back along the river walk spotting a large length of narrowboat friendly pontoon mooring. Note to self: that this might be useful for a future foray along the Trent!
