Imagine standing in the heart of Lincoln’s bustling High Street, where the city council has convened for nearly 800 years. You’re at the Guildhall and Stonebow, a site steeped in history and brimming with secrets. From its Roman roots to its modern-day significance, this iconic landmark has stories to tell that span centuries.
The first gateway where the Stonebow stands today was erected in the early years of the third century. Picture this: a Roman colony with a South Gate serving as a protective entrance to the settlement.
