Lee Road and Queensway

Overview

Lee Road and Queensway Character Area (view detailed map) is an inner city residential suburb located between Greetwell Road to the south and Nettleham Road to the north, with the main Wragby Road running through the centre of the area.

Much of the Character Area remained as open land until the end of the Late Victorian/Edwardian period. Elements of its former open agricultural character are preserved within a built townscape that illustrates Lincoln’s expansion and redevelopment during the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Much of the suburb is composed of single individual property build units constructed during the Late Victorian/Edwardian and Inter-war periods. The style and form of houses within the area varies considerably, resulting in a constantly changing character along many streets. However, there are a small number of larger development units, which are more coherent in character, along some cul-de-sacs.

Houses within the area form part of an inner city suburban area within the confines of the inner ring road formed by Ruskin Avenue to the northeast. Many properties in the Character Area are built alongside houses along the main Wragby and Greetwell roads, forming part of a phase of development along radial Roads which mainly occurred during the Inter-war and Post-war periods.
