Video: Take a tour of the new-look Lincoln Castle

This story is over

After years of work to bring Lincoln Castle back to its former glory, only four days remain until the Medieval gates are lifted, revealing a £22 million makeover.

Robert Woodhead Heritage, alongside Lincolnshire County Council and architects Arroll & Snell, are adding the finishing touches to the regeneration project.

Offering a latest sneak peek over the walls before the castle opens on April 1, the heritage construction company have produced a video of the work as they count down.

Tourism Development Manager at Lincolnshire County Council, Mary Powell, said: “We’ve repaired the full circuit of the Medieval wall, produced a walkway so people can walk all the way round, restored the prison and we’ve built the Magna Carta vault.”

Woodhead Heritage also invited The Lincolnite for a behind-the-scenes tour of the grounds with weeks to go. Rewind to the gallery and video here.
