Lincoln is a cathedral city and the principal settlement and county town in Lincolnshire. Lying by the River Wytham, Lincoln has a population of around 120,000.
Lincoln House Prices & Redevelopment
According to the widely respected estate agents and property consultancy firm Savill’s, property prices have only increased by 1.5% over the past year and are similar to what they were five years ago, in the aftermath of the housing market crash that followed the global financial crisis. While this is an average figure and therefore, by definition, hides several anomalous discrepancies and variations across particular areas, the general picture in terms of the Lincoln housing market is that prices are going up, but generally not quick enough for many Lincoln homeowners. Prior to the crash, the average house price in Lincoln was £20,000 higher than it is today and there are a substantial amount of people in Lincoln who find themselves in the unfortunate position of being in negative equity.
Over the past few years Lincoln has benefited from the addition of the University, St Mark’s Shopping Centre, The Collection Museum and the Heritage Centre. Impending regeneration plans include the construction of 7,500 homes in three areas: the Western Growth Corridor, which runs between Boultham and Birchwood; the North East Quadrant, which begins at the area behind the Carlton Centre and runs along Outer Circle Road; and the South East Quadrant, which runs from Canwick Hill to Bracebrdge Heath. Another 11, 300 homes will also be constructed around the city. In addition, the Linking Lincoln project has been ongoing since 2007 and is making alterations and assisting regeneration in several areas, though principally focused on the city centre.
Lincoln Culture & Attractions
As well as Lincoln Castle, Lincoln Cathedral and the Mediaeval Bishop’s Palace, Lincoln possesses several notable attractions and landmarks, including: Stephen Broadbent’s Empowerment sculpture; Jew’s House & Jew’s Court, both on Steep Hill, which is itself is somewhat of a tourist trap; the 22 acre Lincoln Arboretum; Boultham Mere; the Museum of Lincolnshire Life; High Bridge; the 3rd Century Roman structure Newport Arch; The Collection Museum and Gallery; the infamous Lincoln Imp; The Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory and The Lawn at which it is located; Viking Way; the repurposed events venues The Engine Shed and Lincoln Drill Hall; Hartsholme Country Park off the Skellingthorpe Road; Lincoln Performing Arts Centre; the Theatre Royal; areas such as High Street, St. Catherine’s and Boultham; and the numerous ancient churches – St Benedict’s, St Michael’s, St Wilfrid’s, St Margaret’s, St Mary’s, All Saints, St Andrew’s, St Peter’s, Bourne Abbey, St Wulfram’s, St Mary Magdalene’s, St Medardus and St Gildardus, St Chad’s, St Bartholemew’s, Stow Minster and many more.
Lincoln Tradition & History
In 1972 archaeologists discovered several round wooden Iron Age structures, which have since been dated to the 1st century BCE, next to what is now Brayford Pool in Lincoln. Amongst etymologists it is commonly believed that the name Lincoln derives from this settlement, because the Brythonic word Lindon means pool.
The Romans built a legionary fortress on the large hill above the ancient Stone Age settlement when they conquered the area in 48 CE. The name then became Latinised to Lindum, and the suffix Colonia was later added to convey the fact that it had been converted into a settlement for army veterans in around 80 CE, following the relocation of the local garrison to Eboracum, modern day York. The settlement flourished to such an extent that Flavia Caesariensis designated Lindum Colonia his provincial capital upon the subdivision of Britannia Inferior and it was ecclesiastically important enough to be allowed to send a bishop to the Council of Arles in 314. It’s proximity to the top of the Fosse Way Roman Road (now the A46) and access routes to the sea via both the River Trent and the River Witham, most likely contributed to the settlement’s success.
However, the settlement subsequently fell into decline so that, by the mid 5th Century, it was a virtual ghost-town. Having said that, some level of occupation certainly remained, because St Paulinus attended a meeting with a Praefectus Civitatis there in 629.
The Danelaw was established in Lincoln in 886 and the town developed into an important trading and administrative centre and, by the 10th century, Lincoln had the largest mint in the north outside of York.
In 1068 William I ordered the construction of Lincoln Castle on the site of the old Roman settlement for exactly the same reasons of strategic importance that had inspired the Romans to build their fortress there a millennium before. Lincoln Cathedral followed soon after, with the original building being finished in 1092. It was replaced by Lincoln Minster after the ill-fated cathedral, which had already been rebuilt due to fire, was destroyed by a freakish earthquake in 1185. The diocese of Lincoln was the largest in the country, with more monasteries than the rest of England combined. The importance of the holy see at Lincoln is evidenced by the fact that Hugh Wells, the then Bishop of Lincoln, was present at the signing of Magna Carta. Parenthetically, one of only four extant copies of the famous document is located in Lincoln Castle.
This level of national significance continued throughout much of the Middle Ages. During the Anarchy King Stephen was captured by Empress Matilda’s forces following a bloody battle fought in Lincoln’s streets in 1141. By 1150 Lincoln had become one of the most prosperous towns in England, boasting thriving cloth and wool industries and serving as an important centre of trade. It was the third largest urban centre in England by the 13th century. However widespread plague and repeated flooding of the lower town took their toll during the 14th Century and contributed to a general decline in Lincoln.
The situation was further exacerbated by the dissolution of the monasteries. Henry VIII’s Reformation hit Lincoln harder than most other areas due to the size of the diocese and the amount of monasteries therein, contributing further to the town’s already considerable economic decay.
Lincoln also suffered more than many other towns during the Civil War, during which it was essentially located on the frontline and changed hands several times between the Cavaliers and the Roundheads. Many of its already decaying buildings (the cathedral’s great spire, the height of which is widely accepted to have surpassed the Great Pyramids of Giza upon its construction, collapsed in 1549) were heavily damaged during the conflict of 1642-51.
Following further decline, with no easy access routes to the sea, and lack of major industry, Lincoln experienced a period of economic resurgence in the Georgian period thanks to the reopening of the Foss-Dyke canal and the advent of the Agricultural Revolution. By the time the Industrial Revolution and the railways arrived, Lincoln was booming. The town became a major centre for the heavy engineering and heavy manufacturing industries in the 19th century.
Lincoln switched to defence production during the war years. The first ever tanks were invented in Lincoln by William Foster & Co, who designed and built the prodigious killing machines and tested them in area of the town upon which Tritton Road now lies. During World War II factories in Lincoln built every type of military product imaginable, from tanks to planes to munitions to military vehicles. Heavy industry continued to thrive in Lincoln throughout the postwar years, with diesel engines, locomotives and gas turbines all being constructed in the town in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
Following the nationwide problems that emerged as a consequence of de-industrialisation, Lincoln was forced to diversify its economy in the latter part of the twentieth century. However, manufacturing still contributes significantly to the local economy, with more people in the gas turbine industry than any other area.
Lincoln also has a growing IT industry, with several large e-commerce mail order companies maintaining bases on the outskirts of the city. According to the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Core Strategy public administration, education and health accounts for 34% of the workforce, while distribution, restaurants and hotels account for 25% of employment in the town. Tourism and arable farming are also fairly large contributors to the local economy.
