Hamerton Gardens, Horncastle
Hamerton Gardens, Horncastle
I suppose Hamerton gardens should be described as, Memorial Gardens, there being a memorial to the British Korean Veterans and the fact that many Hamerton lived nearby. Not much solitude as the busy South Street runs alongside, which is frequented by many vehicles bound for Boston.

The Hamertons were wealthy inhabitants of Horncastle and built and owned property at the corner of East Street and South Street. By Hamerton Lane, the whole of that block of buildings, forming five shops and two private residences, once formed one large dwelling place, which belonged to the Hamertons of that day. The building had a frontage in East Street of more than 20 yards, and in South Street of 70 to 80 yards, with extensive back premises and gardens attached. In the early 1600s, three members of the Hamertons were tanners and three others were draper, yeoman and glover.
