Look inside the revamped Dean’s Green at Lincoln Cathedral

Open to the public after four decades

People in the city can now take in stunning scenery by Lincoln Cathedral from the newly-opened Dean’s Green.

It is the first time in over four decades the public has been able to use the space, after the area north of Lincoln Cathedral formed part of Lincoln Minster School.

The Green opened on Monday and will be available to the public seven days a week after renovation works.

There are now new lawns, flower beds, seating areas and a water feature as part of the development.

The Old Deanery has also been redeveloped, with a new visitor centre being built for expected completion in spring 2021.

The refurbishment is a National Lottery-funded project to make the area more scenic, as well as improve facilities at the visitor centre.

A new reception, shop, cafe, community rooms, exhibition and learning space will be inside the centre.
