Each tour will last 75 minutes

Due to popular demand, Lincolnshire County Council has added 320 extra tour slots for people to book ahead of its Lincoln Eastern Bypass open weekend on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June at Canwick Village Hall.

In less than 24 hours, all 368 free site tour tickets were allocated out, leading organisers to add extra times to the Washingborough Road site tour schedule. These slots can be booked by visiting Those without internet access can ring 01522 782040 for assistance with booking.

No additional tickets will be made available once the recently added 320 spaces are booked.

As part of the tours, guests will be able to walk around one of Lincolnshire’s largest ever rural archaeological sites, where over 70,000 artefacts from up to 12,000 years of the county’s history have been unearthed.

Archaeological tours will set off from the hall every 30-60 minutes starting at 10:15am, with the final tour starting at 3:15pm. Each tour will last 75 minutes. Sturdy footwear is required and a waterproof jacket is recommended as tours will take place rain or shine.

Please note that there will be extended periods of walking and standing as part of the tours; however, the open weekend will also include refreshments, information about the road construction scheme and the archaeological work, displays of archaeological finds, and children’s activities at Canwick Village Hall throughout both days for those unable to take part in the site visits.

The open weekend will take place on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June from 9:30am to 5pm on each day at Canwick Village Hall (Montagu Rd, Canwick, Lincoln LN4 2RW). All those attending are asked to park at Canwick Playing Fields off of Heighington Road, as the hall’s car park will be blocked off.

The Lincoln Eastern Bypass project aims to minimise traffic congestion, support Lincoln’s growth as a principal urban centre, and enhance the inter-city environment. The project is on programme to open during Autumn 2019.
