  Windmills of Lincolnshire
(A book on Windmills of Lincolnshire)
Ever since farming began there has been the need to grind grains and cereals to make flour. The story begins with the simplest technique of bashing the grain between two stones and develops into the process of turning a circular millstone on top of another - first by hand and then by harnessing simple power sources.
  Restored Traditional Sign-Posts
Travel through rural Lincolnshire and you will be struck by the charm of its villages - a cluster of houses round the church and village green, the red phone box and the black and white fingerpost, perhaps a bit awry, pointing the way to the next town or village.
  Drawing the Past

  Bolingbroke Castle Moat Project
In 2009 Heritage Lincolnshire and the Friends of Bolingbroke Castle began an exciting project to restore parts of the moat at Bolingbroke Castle. We have produced an education and information pack which explains how the restoration work was carried out and what we were able to discover from the surveys.
  The Tudors in Lincolnshire
Although these activities have been designed to be used at Key Stage 3, they will also be of interest to children working at other Key Stages and to anyone who wants to find out a little more about what life was like in 16th century Lincolnshire.
  Temple Bruer
Computer-generated images of the Knights Templar preceptory at Temple Bruer, Lincolnshire.
The early 13th century tower at Temple Bruer is a rare survival of the standing remains of an important Knights Templar preceptory church. In 2010 Heritage Lincolnshire were given a Renaissance East Midlands MuBu grant to create new computer-generated reconstructions of the preceptory.
  Tupholme Abbey
This education pack shows how evidence can be gathered together from many different sources to reconstruct Tupholme Abbey and show what it might once have looked like.
  Siege of Bolingbroke Castle
This education pack tells the story of the siege of Bolingbroke Castle and the Battle of Winceby and shows how studies of these events can be used in the school curriculum.
   Historic Sites in the care of the Trust
  Bolingbroke Castle
The remains of Bolingbroke Castle can be found within the picturesque village of Old Bolingbroke, located on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The castle was built in the early 13th century by Randulph de Blundeville, Earl of Chester and Lincoln and was later the birthplace of Henry IV.
  Hussey Tower
Hussey Tower was once the impressive manorial home of Sir John Hussey, a member of the court of Henry VIII. It was built in around 1450 by Richard Benyngton, collector of customs and excise in Boston, which was at the time, the wealthiest medieval port in England. The tower was constructed entirely of hand made red brick produced using local clay and was originally part of a large manor house, including a great hall, servants quarters, kitchens, stables and a large gatehouse. The tower was reserved for the high status accommodation of the Lord and his family. Take a journey into Boston's medieval past and visit one of the earliest brick buildings in the county.
  Royal Observer Corps Monitoring Post
In 1955, the government of the day reformed the Royal Observer Corps (ROC) who had been stood down after the war. Their WWII job had been to spot and identify incoming enemy aircraft. Their new job was to staff nuclear bomb monitoring posts.
