Bawtry Hall was built in the 1780s. During the First World War, the Peake family who lived at the Hall ran an agricultural training centre for women from Plumtree Farm, Bawtry. Mrs and Major Peake played a key role in encouraging people in the area and beyond to recognise the importance of female land workers and the contribution they could make to the war effort. The Hall was sold to the RAF in the late 1930s and was used as an RAF base until the 1980s.
The Hall is still standing and is currently in use as office accommodation.
