Boultham and Swallowbeck: Lincoln’s South-Western Suburbs
This ninth volume in the Survey of Lincoln’s booklet series explores the growth of the district and is plotted here from the 16th century into the early years of the 21st century.
Chapters examine famous Lincoln companies such as Ruston and Proctor, Ruston and Hornsby, Ruston-Bucyrus, William Foster and Co and James Dawson and Son, all of which had premises in New Boultham. Grand residences such as Boulthams Hall and the development of Victorian and Edwardian villas, both in Doddington Road and the neighbouring section of Newark Road are explored. The district became home to large numbers of Lincoln’s working families through the construction of substantial housing estates, especially during the middle years of the 20th century and here we examine the growth of such housing during this period in Boultham, Moorland, Hykeham Road and Swallowbeck.
The booklet also considers the district’s schools as well as places of worship and leisure; including Boultham Park and Baths.
