|GLORY HOLE, LINCOLN
A short listed entry in a national competition,
to improve a much neglected section of Lincoln river's edge.
Dominated by the C12th High Bridge over the River Witham, with extensive re-development to the University Campus area, this link between old and new Lincoln has become much more important.
During the C16th High Bridge was known as 'Murder Hole' - it is believed that bodies dropped into the water would wash up at this spot. It now faces the New Lincoln University Campus across Brayford Pool & links the Campus area with the medievel High Street.
|View looking away from High Bridge towards Brayford Pool. The site is now dominated by the flanks of 2 large department stores.|
