MONUMENT NO. 1501696

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of the encampment at Thornton Abbey of the Lindsey Battalion of the Lincolnshire Rifle Volunteers and Lincolnshire Light Horse. A plan of the encampment shows tent pitches and the parade ground set up within the medieval North Bail for Lord Yarborough's annual week-long encampment of the troops between 1867 and 1870. Other communal tents stood within the abbey's outer court, to the west of the church. To the north of the church, a building possibly associated with the encampment, perhaps a magazine, survived until some time between 1886 and 1906, according to OS maps.
