Brayford – From Transport Hub to Entertainment Centre

BRAYFORD was the commercial centre of Lincoln for almost 2,000 years.  Until the mid-20th century it was surrounded by mills, grain stores and allied businesses.  Kendalls boatyard on the south side built boats that worked the River Witham and the Fossdyke Canal.

Gradually the water traffic disappeared and the area became rundown and derelict.  Now it is the entertainment centre of Lincoln:  A cinema, bars, restaurants and pubs plus events on the university campus make this a bustling area.  The south side has a large marina with boats of all sizes and types.
