Due to two world wars and the ravages of time Lamport Hall has undergone many changes, some of which are a family home, flats, country club, Records office and an Italian prisoner of war camp.
Sir Gyles Isham died in 1976, in his will he bequeathed the estate to the Lamport Hall Preservation Trust, which was set up to carry on the lengthy restoration work needed after dry rot and general neglect was found.
The hall and grounds are now a centre of culture and education.
Today an Art and Craft Fair was held and although the weather was very changeable [sunshine and showers] we made a visit.
The vast stables are a great venue for all the different stalls, everything from leather work, to jam!
