Classic Vehicles on Castle Hill, Lincoln - Sunday, 8th June, 2008


Every year, Lincoln Castle plays host to the Lincoln Castle Vintage Vehicle Rally. 'Vintage' is an unusual term since most are classic cars. There are three terms used to describe vehicles of the past era:

The first is ‘Veteran cars’, these were manufactured before 1903.
The second is ‘Vintage cars’, manufactured between 1903 and 1933.
The third is ‘Classic cars’ and these tend to be at least fifteen years old.

The event is run by The Lincolnshire Vintage Vehicle Society Ltd., which was established in 1959. It is a registered charity, and owner and operator of the Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum, North Hykeham, Lincoln.

The next rally is to be held on Sunday 10th June 2012. The event will start at 11:00am (vehicles should be in position no later than 10:00am) and finish at approximately 17:00pm after presentation of awards. For reasons of Health and Safety, vehicles will not be permitted to leave the Castle grounds between these times except in an emergency.

Visitors

Normal admission charges to Lincoln Castle apply for visitors on the day.

Pedestrian entrance is via either the Castle Hill or Westgate entrance, and there are a number of car parks in the area, including Westgate and at The Lawns, Union Road. Plan a route to Westgate / Union Road with Transport Direct (post code LN1 3BG)

Alternatively, the Castle entrance is not far from the Bailgate / Radio Lincolnshire bus stop, served by Stagecoach Lincolnshire bus routes 17 / 18 from the City Centre and northern suburbs of Lincoln. The Castle Hill entrance is served by the Walk and Ride bus service (timetable opens as a PDF document) from the City Centre, this operates from 12:00 noon onwards on Sundays.

Vehicle Entries

Vehicle entries must be booked in advance, as the site capacity is limited - PDF LinkExternal link

The following photographs were taken after the event. Due to the number of people about and the need to keep moving out of the way, it wasn't easy not to include the cannon in the frame, as the cars went by. This wasn't a problem for most of the time, but has made for one or two unusual images where it looks as though it's being carried by the vehicle.

Unfortunately, photographs of a few other classic cars had to be left out where passers-by walked between the camera and subject.

It would have been nice to have included the:

•AC •Allard •Aston Martin •Bentley •Lagonda
•Lotus •Morgan •Rolls-Royce •Vauxhall

I'm looking for any information about the vehicles, especially where they were manufactured and to include links to other photographs, if possible. Please email my through my profile page if you have anything to add or correct.

The Castle

The East Gate is the main entrance to the castle and originally was a plain Norman arch built into a recess in the wall. Years later it was strengthened by a gatehouse and two round turrets. There was also a dry moat, drawbridge and portcullis, which were demolished in 1791. The castle is now owned by Lincolnshire County Council and is a scheduled ancient monument. At the gate is a gift shop. The Crown Court, at the far end of the green, still dispenses justice.

The West Gate has pedestrian access only. In medieval times, a ramped bridge led from open countryside to what was the main gateway through the city wall. It was sealed up in the fifteenth century and reopened again in recent times.

Wall Walks - The walks extend in an anti-clockwise direction from the Observatory Tower, heading northwards to the Cobb Hall, westwards by the Bath House and finally southwards via the West Gate. The views all around are magnificent and the Trent Valley and its power station can be seen from the west wall. The best view of the Cathedral is from the top of the Observatory Tower.

Warning - The Castle walls are extremely high in places and not for the faint-hearted. There are gaps that a small child could squeeze through, so please don't let them wander off. The Observatory Tower has a tight spiral staircase up to the turret and the castellated wall at the top is not very high. If you suffer from vertigo, this is not the place for you.

Lea-Francis

SK9771 : Castle Hill, Lincoln - Vehicle by Dave Hitchborne
Lea-Francis - The 2.5 litre Sports. They were built between 1949 and 1953 in Lower Ford Street, Coventry. They were really more of a 2+2 tourer than a sporting car. When the company began failing in 1960, a new sports car was launched using parts from the Ford Zephyr, which was no longer being built. There was an adequate supply of parts, but the project never got beyond the prototype stage. Production of Lea-Francis cars ceased shortly after. Top speed was 100mph.
The Lea-Francis Lower Ford Street factory was near this junction LinkExternal link (Raglan Street, Alma Street and Lower Ford Street all meet).
The factory moved to Much Park Street in 1937 LinkExternal link (in the background behind the statue.) No factory remains in Much Park Street.
