Stonebow and Guildhall

Incorporated into the Guildhall the Stonebow is the south gate of the City, dating from the late 15th Century to early 16th Century. It was built on the site of the Roman South Gate, which remained a medieval gateway for many years, until it was demolished in the late 14th Century for being unsafe. The present building which was restored and remodelled 1885-90, is a grade I listed building It has been the seat of the City Council since 1520. The two statues either side of the central arch are St.Mary, patron Saint of Lincoln and the Archangel Gabriel, re-used 13th century figures. The clock dates from 1888 and it replaces one of 1835.
