Lincoln’s Newport Arch reopens after its restoration due to damages. The Newport Arch is one of Lincoln’s oldest and most significant landmarks. The arch can be traced to the 3rd century and is classified as of Roman origins.
The arch was damaged due to corrosion as well as due to the wet and cold winters that happens in Lincoln. Thus, it was put up on the heritage’s risk list, earning it some fund for repairs. The arch had a £140,000 worth of renovation, which is considered as the largest in all of its history.
Moreover, the restoration has finally been completed. The reopening followed, with the attendance of Lincoln’s mayor, Pat Vaughan.
Throughout time, the arch was considered as an English Heritage as well as the only Roman arch open to traffic in the whole of the United Kingdom.
