Lincoln Information

Lincoln is Lincolnshire's county town and is situated in the West Midlands. The non-metropolis region of Lincoln contains an estimated population approaching 100,000 with the entire urbanised area of Lincoln having in excess of 130,000 inhabitants. The area was urbanised as a community during the Iron Age and became an important Roman town known as Lindum Colonia.

The main attractions of the city include Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle which is an 11th century Norman citadel. The Castle houses one of the four surviving original copies of the Magna Carta.

Lincoln was very successful in the Middle Ages and was amongst the wealthiest towns in England based on wool and cloth often died scarlet and green which was mainly exported to Flanders. During the 13th century the city was the 3rd largest in England however the city's fortunes declined over the next century as the area became more inclined to flooding and disease.

Lincoln was very successful during the Industrial Revolution and subsequently established a reputation in heavy engineering including building locomotives, steam shovels and heavy machinery. During the two world wars the city's manufacturers switched to military production building tanks, aircraft and military vehicles. The World's first military tanks were designed, built and tested in the city.

The economy of Lincoln depends on municipal government, trade, arable agri-business and tourism with some of the remnants of previous industrial production still being in existence. Many of the vacant production buildings have been converted into multi-occupancy industrial units for small and medium sized businesses.
