The garden wall
The garden wall
A major feature of the Grimsthorpe estate is this Wall, which stretches round the former kitchen garden.

The garden and this wall are not separately listed by Historic England, but they do form part of, and are mentioned in, the grade I listing of the whole park. See: LinkExternal link
Grimsthorpe Castle
The first castle at Grimsthorpe was built by Gilbert de Gant, Earl of Lincoln in the early 13th century, but has been the home of the de Eresby family since 1516, when it was granted by Henry VIII to the 11th Baron Willoughby de Eresby on the occasion of his marriage to Maria de Salinas, lady-in-waiting to Queen Katherine of Aragon. Their daughter Katherine inherited the estate and married Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, who built much of the house that remains today.
The Baroque north Front is the last work of Sir John Vanbrugh, commissioned in 1715 by his friend Robert Bertie, the 17th Baron Willoughby de Eresby, to celebrate his ennoblement as the first Duke of Ancaster and Kesteven.
