Sealed medieval door at Lincoln Castle to be opened to create complete wall walk

A sealed-up medieval doorway at Lincoln Castle is to be knocked through under plans to create uninterrupted wall walks.

Lincolnshire County Council has £3.5 million to open up the south wall to the public, linking it to the other three walls via a system of cantilevered bridges and timber walkways.

Work is set to begin on the wall, off Drury Lane, in May.

It is part of a wider regeneration and repair project and creating the complete circuit of the walls will need further work in 2012 and 2013.
