About Lincoln

Find out all about Lincoln

  • Lincoln boomed during the industrial revolution and began to excel in the engineering industry, in particular through the production of air engines and tanks.
  • In 1916 the first-ever tanks were designed and built-in Lincoln, giving the city the nicknamed ‘Tank Town’. These machines were paraded through the city before going to war and significantly shortened the First World War, preventing many more casualties.
  • Lincoln was also a center for the aviation industry with 1 in 14 WWI aircraft being produced in the city. Later, the county became known as Bomber County with a large number of RAF bases running on the flat countryside.
  • Into the 21st century, Lincoln is home to one of the UK’s fastest-growing modern universities, is still a world leader in the engineering industry, with almost 2000 years of historical past to explore.
  • Lincoln developed from the Roman town of Lindum Colonia, which developed from an Iron Age settlement. Lincoln’s major landmarks are Lincoln Cathedral, a famous example of English Gothic architecture, and Lincoln Castle, an 11th-century Norman castle.
  • The city is also home to the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University. See Lincoln City F.C. for Lincoln City Football Club.
