Washingborough Road,
LN4 1EF.

The City of Lincoln has a long and ancient history dating from the Iron Age and then settled and established as a flourishing centre by the Romans and later the Vikings. The City again flourished during Medieval times with the formation of a mint and, in the 11th century and on the orders of William the Conqueror, the construction of a short-lived cathedral building which, very unusually, was destroyed by earthquake. Reconstructed in the late 12th century, the then Lincoln Minster was a stunning building which boasted the highest tower in Europe.

In 1215, the Bishop of Lincoln was a witness to the signing of Magna Carta at Runnymede and the City still plays host to one of the original copies. William the Conqueror was also responsible for the construction of Lincoln Castle which, in 2015 – the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta - will host a special display within the newly constructed Magna Carta Vault, see

Lincoln has also had strong associations with major cultural and historic events of national significance from the establishment of weaving and the famous Lincoln Green cloth, through the tragic times of Jewish persecution, the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the English Civil War, the Agricultural Revolution and, with the arrival of the railways, the industrial revolution in the 19th Century.
