"Knight and Day" ~ Lincoln's Knights trail

"Knight and Day" ~ Lincoln's Knights trail
Follow the Lincoln Knights’ Trail - 36 sculptures across Lincoln city centre - to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln and the sealing of the Charter of the Forest.

“The Battle of Lincoln, one of the most decisive in English history, meant that England would be ruled by the Angevin, not the Capetian dynasty.”

The launch of the Lincoln Knights' Trail will also take place during a day of events to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln 1217 on Saturday, May 20.

On the very day 800 years ago when one of the most important battles in English history took place, the city where the events unfolded will mark the occasion. Lincoln will be recreating history by marking the anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln 1217 and the Sealing of the Charter of the Forest.

Famous Knight William Marshal led an army from Newark to Lincoln to face French invaders and their supporters, who had laid siege to Lincoln Castle, which was under control of custodian Nicholaa de la Haye. Despite being outnumbered Marshal outwitted his enemy and led his forces to victory for Lincoln and England.

As part of the anniversary events, the Lincoln Knights' Trail will launch.

Following on from the success of the Barons' Trail in 2015, 36 full-sized painted knights are waiting to be discovered.

I like this one too, Steve. the Stars in the eyes of the Knight, and the sun coming up around the feet. A dramatic effect. ! as said before, this whole series is a good job done Steve, to preserve these in your files to have later, when they may be dismantled or sold.... YS!!

We are watching a pretty severe Tropical Storm heading straight at the lower USA, around Lousianna and parts of the Texas Coastline... Lousianna being very low, is expecting massive flooding there!!! :( We will get rain from this system, already seeing some effects even now...Overcast and misty conditions. Hope you are having a good week.

kind wishes, Sarah xx

Hello my dear Sarah thank you also i am pleased you like this Knight also and your YS is very much appreciated :))

they are only placed around the central area of the city and only for a quite short time period ... once it is deemed that time is up they will be removed from the city and auctioned off individually with the proceeds then shared out amoung deserving charitys

I hope you certainly miss the worst of the storms there around lower USA and only get the little needed rain ... we are also due thunderstorms here tonight

Best wishes ... Steve xx
