About Lincoln, Lincolnshire
The City of Lincoln has seen dramatic changes and developments in the last few years. The opening of the University has brought in many thousands of students and seen a sharp increase in businesses catering for their needs. With the new by-pass being built and continued improvement to the cities infrastructure, Lincoln is no longer overlooked by investors and businesses. Each year we deal with many people moving to our City, attracted by our low cost, low crime environment.
The architectural brilliance of the outside is matched by its many ancient treasures inside. If you look carefully inside you may also find lurking amid the stonework the famous Lincoln Imp. In Minster Yard there are several superb buildings including a fine tithe barn of 1440 and the ancient Bishop's Palace.
Standing at the entrance to Bailgate is Newport Arch, which is the only surviving Roman gateway to span an English street and is one among a number of Roman relics that survive in the city. A walk up Lincoln's Steep Hill will reward you with the sight of more of the city's historical gems.
The Cardinal's Hat is a late 15th century house that was once an inn probably named after Cardinal Wolsey who was Bishop of Lincoln in 1514-15.
Close by is Dernstall House, a restored two storey house of the same period.
Built even earlier is the Jew's House. This has a fascinating history and is an outstanding 12th century building which has a fine decorated arch over the main door. Next door is the Jew's Court which is a former Jewish Synagogue.
The city's heritage also includes the 15th century Stonebow and Guildhall and the 12th century High Bridge over the River Witham, the oldest in Britain still to carry buildings.
