Lincoln Castle, Most school children know that in 1066 it was the battle of Hastings, well after the battle William the Conqueror ordered that castles were to be built throughout England and in 1068 the Normans started constructing the Lincoln castle it was one of the first built by the Normans. It was built on the site of a former roman fortress. It dominated the surrounding country side until the Cathedral was built in 1072. Lincoln castle has had lots of renovation work carried out on it over the years and is well worth a visit you can walk around most of the ancient walls, and visit the dungeons that are embedded in the castle walls. It is also well worth the cramped walk up the spiral stair case in the observatory tower, and see the magnificent views over Lincoln city. For the past 900 years Lincoln castle has been used as a prison and court, and some of those prisoners have left their mark in the cemetery the last one to be executed was in 1872.
