Lincoln Castle

Lincoln Castle Revealed is an ambitious restoration of this building that dates from 1068. Some £22m has been spent on the Castle between 2011-15 revealing the restored Lincoln Castle in time to celebrate Magna Carta’s 800th anniversary in 2015.

 

A new wall walk has been installed and the Victorian prison will also reopen to visitors. The work was funded by Lincolnshire County Council, Heritage Lottery money and private donations.

 

The high-security underground vault will house the 1215 Magna Carta, alongside an original copy of the Charter of the Forest, which was signed two years later.

 

'Inspiration to nations'

 

Castle manager Rachael Thomas said the Lincoln Castle Revealed project has given the document "the home it deserves".

"Not only is Magna Carta a cornerstone of our justice system, but it has served as an inspiration to other nations around the globe," she said.

 

John Richard Decorators was involved in many aspects of the refurbishment including the new shop, court room, visitors centre and decorative walls.
