Uphill Lincoln I - Burton Road Newport and the Ermine Estate, edited by Andrew Walker

Booklet published by the Survey of Lincoln in 2009, 72 pages. A5 size booklet (N5457)

From the rear side cover: This booklet considers the development of part of uphill Lincoln - the north west segment bounded by Yarborough Road, the north of Burton Road, the A46 bypass, Nettleham Road, Church Lance, Rasen Lane and Carline Road.

The work examines both the residential development and industrial growth of the area from Roman times to the beginning of the 21st century.  Chapters range from the Roman occupation and the appearance of medieval suburbs to residential growth in the 19th and 20th centuries, including the extensive post-war development of the Ermine Estate.  The changing attitudes towards institutions in society is revealed in chapters exploring churches and chapels, the asylum, workhouse, military barracks and the home for penitent females

From the introduction: The collection of brief chapters contained here covers aspects of the physical development of this particular area of the city over time and identifies the social and cultural changes which have fuelled the need for the constant construction, and some reconstruction, of this district. It takes as its boundaries the following: Yarborough Road, Burton Road (North); the A46 bypass; Netdeham Road; Church Lane; Cecil Street; Rasen Lane; Burton Road (southern extremity); Union Road; and Carline Road. Thus, its range comprises the north-west segment of the city, outside its historic fortifications.
