Around 6,500 people visited the castle on Saturday, May 28, where over 5,000 ceramic poppies are displayed to the public.

The breathtaking sculpture, a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks, was originally seen at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

Lincolnshire has many strong ties with landmark events in World War One, when Lincoln Castle was used by the Lincolnshire Regiment for fundraisers and parades.

The world’s first operational tank (as well as aircraft and munitions) were manufactured in Lincoln, and countrywide there were thirty seven military aerodromes by 1918.
