A view in ink of the Norman gateway of the old house near St Peter's in the Gotes (now St Peter at Gowts) in Lincoln. Grimm writes that the house was "pretended by some to have been the stables of John of Gaunt, by some a religious house, and by others the old Town Hall and a prison: that Lord Hussey was beheaded under the south window for having joined the holy pilgrimage in the time of Henry VII [actually Henry VIII in 1536]."
