Lincoln High Street, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Lincoln High Street, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

The high street of Lincoln is approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long and marries together all that is modern with plenty of admiring glances to the past; 18th century cottages converted to shops nestling comfortably with shiny new department stores, magnificent town gates and bustling retail parks.

The street itself forms one of the busiest road access routes into the city centre and is lined with a never ending row of public houses, restaurants, local shops, private homes, offices, car dealerships, department stores, chain stores, churches, a school, memorials, the River Witham, a level crossing and the Sincil Bank drains.

The high street passes under the 15th century town gate, restored in the late 19th century. The figures in the niches are the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary, patron Saint of the city and the Lincoln Cathedral. In the centre are the royal coat of arms of James I, dated early 17th century.

Lincoln high street is another part of the wonderful tapestry that makes up the historical city of Lincoln.
