This 64 page volume in the Survey of Lincoln neighbourhood series examines an area of the city closely associated with the southern High Street, bounded at the north by High Bridge and at the south by South Park. The area covered extends west to the River Witham, as it runs parallel to the High Street and to the east by Sincil Dyke.
The booklet focuses upon the buildings and structures within the neighbourhood, ranging across time from the Roman period to the later twentieth century. As this volume makes clear, this part of the city has played a vital part in accommodating its workers over time. Employment has been provided in a variety of occupations, in mills, workshops, retail and wholesale businesses and railway-related activities. Large quantities of workers’ housing is also in evidence and the district’s schools, places of worship and associated buildings are all examined here.
Together, the various chapters reveal how an exploration of the neighbourhood’s buildings and structures can shed light on the social, economic and cultural lives of its inhabitants. This is a companion volume to the Survey of Lincoln’s first neighbourhood publication, Wigford: Historic Lincoln South of the River.

second paragraph should read: In 1913 (Date-stone), a Congregationalist Sunday School/Lecture Hall was erected ......
Arthur Ward adds: In 1888, on a site north of the present 1913 building, was erected a iron building (tin tabernacle), following the clearance of six houses. This was paid for by Joseph Ruston and erected under the supervision of architect, William Mortimer.
The 1913 building became redundant in 1992/3. It was designed by architect J C Broughton and built by builder, F S Highton (?).
