Lincoln Castle
Lincoln Castle Report

Lincoln Castle was built by William the Conqueror (not, I hasten to add, with his own fair hands) in the 11th Century to keep the good burgers of Lincoln from showing the slightest sign of rebelling against the new order of things, after a rather poor English showing at the battle of Hastings.

The castle was built on the site of a Roman fortress which had been built up to a 1,000 years before for more or less the same reason.

It is one of the better preserved castles in the country and it is still possible to walk round the walls, without running the risk of falling off where a Victorian shopping development has removed half of it or a section has been taken away to finish off an Edwardian extension to a local pub.

It commands an excellent view, being on just about the only hill of note in the whole of Lincolnshire.

Lincoln Castle has not seen much in the way of fighting during it's long history. A couple of minor skirmishes during various periods of upheaval, when one power or another was disputing the crown, in that prequel to The Games of Thrones that is commonly referred to as 'English History' (no dragons though). Mostly it seems to have sat there quietly doing it's job of oppressing the locals over the centuries until it finally came into it's own in the C18th as a local prison and place of public execution. Hangings, beheadings and so forth.

It is a great place to visit and is open most days and there is plenty to keep you occupied.
