Lincoln Road Linear

Overview

Lincoln Road Linear Development Character Area lies to the southwest of the city of Lincoln and incorporates part of the historic core of the village of North Hykeham. Lincoln Road is a major route into the city and Moor Lane is an arterial route around the southwest and both carry high volumes of traffic during the day.
 
Within the existing townscape there are a number of traces of the area’s historical development. Surviving elements include the street pattern of the historic core, the extents of the village green, the 19th century All Saints Church and Methodist Chapel. From the historic core of the village, Late Victorian/Edwardian Period [1869-1919 AD] houses radiate out from the historic core along Lincoln Road, Mill Lane and Moor Lane.
 
The area is made up of a number of residential developments constructed mainly during the Inter-War Period [1920-1945 AD] interspersed with smaller infill developments dating to the Post-War [1945-1967 AD] and Modern [1967-2010 AD] Periods. Each residential development has an identifiable and consistent architectural style.
 
Open space consists of wide verges along Lincoln Road and Mill Lane and a park towards the centre of the Character Area. Access to rural areas is limited except at the south of Mill Lane and through the adjacent Character Area to the east.
