Hussey Tower was once the impressive manorial home of Sir John Hussey, a member of the court of Henry VIII.

The tower was constructed entirely of hand made red brick produced using local clay and was originally part of a large manor house, including a great hall, servants quarters, kitchens, stables and a large gatehouse. The tower was reserved for the high status accommodation of the Lord and his family. Take a journey into Boston's medieval past and visit one of the earliest brick buildings in the county.
