Wothorpe Towers

Wothorpe Towers is a romantic ruin: The remains of a unique 17th Century building of national significance. Situated on a hill above the town of Stamford, it was once an imposing Jacobean lodge created by the eldest son of Lord Burghley, Thomas Cecil, 1st Earl of Exeter, the eldest son of William Cecil, 1st Lord Burghley the great advisor to Elizabeth I. as a place of recreation. Built in the early 1600s, this was a wholly new type of Lodge – not set in a deer-park, forest or rabbit warren but instead created in a pastoral setting as a retreat from the formality and responsibility of a big house.
