Uphill Lincoln I: Burton Road, Newport and the Ermine Estate
This is the fifth booklet in the series and in common with three others in the series examines one specific part of the city of Lincoln. The collection of brief chapters here covers aspects of the physical development as well as the industrial growth of the north west segment bounded by Yarborough Road, the north of Burton Road, the A46 bypass, Nettleham Road, Church Lane, Rasen Lane and Carline Road. It explores this from the Roman occupation of the district to the beginning of the 21st century.
Uphill Lincoln is particularly rich in institutional buildings and with the social and cultural changes that took place over this period this booklet also explores the districts churches, chapels, schools, asylum, workhouse, military barracks and also a home for penitent females.
