Heritage Skills Centre: Construction is underway for the first new building inside Lincoln Castle for 150 years.

Construction is underway for the £2.1 million Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle, which is the first new building inside the castle for 150 years.

The centre will train new recruits to learn bygone crafts, and public viewing spaces will be created inside four workshops, making it a visitors’ attraction.

Lincoln Cathedral craftsmen will make use of the building initially, as well as several trainees, thanks to a £250,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
