The White Hart
The hotel was built upon the site of the old White Hart in 1868; there has been an inn or hostelry on the site for centuries. The yard at the rear of the hotel once held the Sleaford wool market and hosted Lincoln Cathedral’s famous bell, Great Tom, for a night on it journey to be installed. The shop to the side of the archway has been at times a jewellers, a café, a men-and-boys’ clothing shop and a jewellers again. In the early 21st century, the now somewhat dilapidated building was restored to its current condition.
