Hartsholme Country Park

The lake was constructed by the Lincoln Waterworks Company in 1848 as a water supply for Lincoln. In 1868 local industrialist Joseph Shuttleworth built Hartsholme Hall overlooking the Lake. He died in 1883 leaving his estate to his sons Alfred and Frank who sold it to Nathaniel Clayton Cockburn. The estate was subsequently owned by Colonel Thomas Harding and Lord & Lady Liverpool between 1909 and 1939. The hall and park were requisitioned during the war and the building subsequently fell into ruin with much of the surrounding parkland sold for housing. The hall was pulled down in 1951 and the remaining parkland became a country park in 1978. LinkExternal link
