Lincoln Knights’ Trail
Follow a trail of 36 Knight sculptures throughout Lincoln to mark 800 years since the Battle of Lincoln and the sealing of the Charter of the Forest.
The sculpture trail consists of 36 knights which represent the two main figures of the 1217 Battle of Lincoln – Nicola de la Haye (Custodian of Lincoln Castle) and William Marshall (Regent to the young King Henry III). Also look out for designs to represent the Charter of the Forest.
Each sculpture has been sponsored by a local business and painted by a talented artist, with a hidden symbol on each. Find each symbol and complete the quest to receive a certificate and badge, plus discount off an exclusive Battle of Lincoln children’s book.
To see the locations of the knights, see the Lincoln Knights’ Trail website.

Icons of the 80’s – T’Pau, Go West & Tony Hadley Lincoln Castle – Saturday 12th August, 2017.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Go West had their first hit single “We Close Our Eyes”. Other hits followed including “Call Me”, “Goodbye Girl” and “Don’t Look Down”, “Faithful” and the smash hit theme song in the film Pretty Woman “King of Wishful Thinking”.
As former lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. In addition to all the band’s songs, many will remember his prominent vocal contribution to the Band Aid UK charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas” and subsequent 1985 London appearance at Live Aid.
T’Pau’s first single “Heart and Soul” was released in 1987 and initially found success in the US after being featured in a Pepe Jeans commercial, before charting in the UK. Their biggest hit “China in Your Hand” hit the top spot in the UK later that year, and stayed at number 1 for 5 weeks.
