Castle Hill Club, Lincoln
Castle Hill Club, Lincoln
Formerly the Black Boy Inn. The earliest recording of a hostelry on this site, is 1642, though probably not the first by many hundred years. Although a lease, dated 1745, refers to the Black Boy Inn, most of it is post 1700.
Famous visitors include lsambard Kingdom Brunel who was engaged by the Fossdyke Navigation to undertake a survey from Torksey Lock, and the official executioner Marwood who stayed when carrying out his hangings in the Castle grounds.
In the early part of the twentieth century the club was patronised by several of the Cathedral clergy. In fact they even kept one of their own silver chalices on the premises. When the pub closed in 1923 eleven former regulars got together and founded the Castle Hill Club.
