Lincoln Castle - Lincolnshire - Castle

Distance 0.07 miles (0.12 km)
By Norman times Lincoln was the third city of the realm in prosperity and importance, the city even had its own mint for making coins. In 1068, two years after the battle of Hastings, William the Conqueror began building Lincoln Castle on a site occupied since Roman times. To enlarge the site 166 Saxon houses were demolished, the Castle dominated the Lincoln skyline until the Cathedral was built. It is one of only two castles in Britain built with two mottes (Lewes is the other). The Castle was the focus of several military battles during the reign of King Stephen and King John and was besieged during the Baron's War in the early 13th century. Many original features still remain and the wall walks provide visitors with magnificent views of the Cathedral, the City of Lincoln and the surrounding countryside.

Lincoln City Football Club - Football Club

Distance 1.05 miles (1.68 km)
On one side is the large all seater CO-OP Community Stand. This large single tiered covered stand opened in 1995 and has a capacity of 5,700. Opposite is the Lincolnshire Echo Stand, a small old looking covered stand (although in fact it is comparatively modern being built in 1987). It is seated, but only runs half the length of the pitch, straddling the half way line and hence there are gaps at either side. One gap has now been partly filled by a tiny covered Family Stand. Both ends are small covered affairs. The IMPS Stand is all seated and has a row of executive boxes running across the back. This stand has a couple of supporting pillars at the front. The other end is the 'Stacey West' all seated, covered stand, for home supporters. It was named in memory of the two Lincoln supporters who lost their lives in the Bradford City Fire at Valley Parade in 1985.
