Learn about the Lincoln Eastern Bypass and take an archaeological tour

17 May 2017

Taking place on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June from 9:30am to 5pm

Please be aware that all tours are now fully booked.

LEB Archaeology

Each tour will last 75 minutes

Lincolnshire County Council and its Lincoln Eastern Bypass partners and contractors will host an open weekend that will include information about the scheme, archaeological finds and tours of the scheme’s Washingborough Road site where over 70,000 artefacts from up to 12,000 years of the county’s history have been unearthed.

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.

In addition to Washingborough Road site tours, visitors can meet representatives from Lincolnshire County Council, Carillion Construction, Network Archaeology and others organisations to discuss the bypass scheme and better understand what goes into constructing such a large piece of infrastructure. 

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. Spaces are limited and can be booked in advance here: Those without internet access can ring 01522 782040 for assistance with booking.

At the hall, the open weekend will also include refreshments, information about the road construction scheme and the archaeological work, displays of archaeological finds, and activities.

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.
