8/25 The Priory
Prison and Sessions House, Kirton Bridewell, now residential home. 1791-4
for the Magistrates for the Division of Lindsey. Dressed limestone with
tooled ashlar dressings and slate roof. Classical style frontage. T-shaped
on plan: central entrance block 3 bays square, with truncated 2-bay wings to
rear. 2 storeys with basement to central block, 3 bays; symmetrical.
Stepped plinth; raised quoins. C20 steps to recessed part-glazed door in
round-arched entrance in raised surround with keystone. Basement sash to

surrounds with stone cills. Boldly moulded cornice. Hipped roof. Axial

late C19 and materials used elsewhere in the town, most notably in the Town
Hall. Of the surviving section, the central block originally contained the
Gaoler's apartments and Magistrates rooms, and the left and right wings were
the male and female sections, with service rooms on the ground floor and
cells above. H A Fisher, The History of Kirton in Lindsey, 1981,
