LINCOLN AtoZ

Ab3 Newland / Brayford Wharf North

December 19, 2013

This week we're back in the city centre, in the area around Newland and Brayford Wharf North, where Paul and Jonny are pleased to find that students haven't changed too much since their day despite the worrying presence of a gym, and enjoy a trendy Japanese beer on the balcony of the Hilton hotel whilst ruminating over how the area has changed since it's years as a working dock.  We also recall the halcyon days of the 2012 Olympics and hear from Nick Hope who was one of the lucky bearers of the Olympic flame when it passed through this very grid.  All this plus some bone-fide facts from Jo Hughes and Tref's view of the area, plus another round of A Question of Lincoln.
