  About your Area

Fulbeck is a small village inside the northern perimeter of South Kesteven, Lincolnshire that lies between Grantham and Lincoln on the A607. To the north is Leadenham, and to the south is Caythorpe.

In 1986, the former airfield of RAF Fulbeck had the dubious honour of being considered by the United Kingdom government body, NIREX, as one possible site for an underground deep storage facility for the country's nuclear waste. Geological investigations took place but plans for the facility were abandoned in 1987. The RAF base was used from October 1944 until the end of the war by two Lancaster squadrons, one of which was 189 sqdn.

The village has an attractive old pub called the Hare and Hounds. The church, St. Nicholas dates back to 1300 AD, and has an unusual 8 pinnacled bell tower, a window restored in about 1858 but kept in the original 1300 AD style, and a Perpendicular Gothic window.


[edit] Fulbeck Hall

Fulbeck Hall, the home of the Fane family since 1632, has been much altered. It now mostly in the classically inspired style of the 18th century. It was acquired by Sir Francis Fane, courtier and commander of the King's forces at Doncaster and Lincoln. He was allowed to buy back the confiscated estate and before the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 occupied much of his time in rebuilding the Hall in Restoration style. It was burned down 30 December 1731 and was rebuilt 1732-1733. His son, also Sir Francis, had only one male descendant who died childless. His widow inherited Fulbeck and passed it on her death in 1767 to a second cousin once removed, Henry Fane. From him it passed to Thomas Fane, 8th Earl of Westmorland who gave it to his younger son Henry in 1783. He was a clerk in the Treasury before in 1772 he became Keeper of the King's Private Roads, Gates and Bridges. He followed and accompanied a long list of Fanes as Members of Parliament for Lyme Regis. In 1777 Henry Fane married Anne Batson by whom he had 14 children. In 1784 they occupied Fulbeck and enlarged and refurnished it, adding a new north wing.

Many of the contents of Fulbeck Hall were sold by Sotheby's in October 2002. Included in the sale where letters and mementos given by the Duke of Wellington to two members of the Fane family - Harriet Fane, (better known as the early 19th century diarist Mrs Arbuthnot) and her cousin Lady Georgiana Fane.
