Knights prepare for battle as trail takes shape in Lincoln

Organisers have been hard at work preparing for the official launch of the 2017 Lincoln Knights’ Trail tomorrow, and the excitement is building across the city as colourful sculptures take their positions.

The Lincoln Knights’ Trail, running from Saturday, May 20 until September 3, will feature 37 noble hand painted knights, guarding points across the city.

Many have been arriving in the city centre throughout Friday, May 19. Take a sneak peek of the knights as they gear up for the trail launch.

The trail makes up part of city-wide celebrations for the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln.

A programme of activities and events is taking place across the city throughout the commemoration day on Saturday, May 20.
