An Anglo-Saxon settlement, deserted during the Medieval period. Sepringham was mentioned in the Domesday Book.
The settlement was the location for the foundation of St Gilbert's monastic order in the mid 12th century. After Dissolution Lord Clinton built Sempringham Hall over the site of the priory. St Andrew's church (Listed) is all that remains today of this settlement. The area has been subject to recent survey and study. Evidence from field walking (surface finds), geophysical survey and aerial photography have expanded the knowledge of this site.
