Tattershall College was a grammar school in Tattershall, Lincolnshire. The college was established in 1439 and the building which still stands today was constructed between 1454 and 1460. This building was built by the 3rd Baron Cromwell for the education of the church choristers and was once a splendid example of the perpendicular style of Gothic architecture.
A timber almshouse attached to the college was built by a carpenter Henry Halsebroke for the warden John Gigur in 1486. It was sited near the churchyard. It had a hall, chapel, and buttery and rooms for 13 pensioners or bedesmen.
In the late 18th century, it was converted into a brewery before being left empty and allowed to deteriorate into the ruin that it now is with those walls that remain standing shored up by modern brick. Heritage Lincolnshire is managing the site.
