The Colosseum

To have the good fortune and honour to acquire a development site of this quality in premier uphill Lincoln is a very, very rare thing indeed. We saw it as possibly the last opportunity for any developer to create a landmark development of homes in the cultural heart of our historic city.

Whilst others may have sought to lay out the site for rows of standard, anonymous contemporary style homes, we went off in search of a vision, which would lead us on to designing by contrast, the extraordinary.

Homes that would each be unique in their own way, yet have a harmony in design, a quality of appointment, as well as an exclusivity and privacy that would appeal to ensure they would endure beyond our time and add to the great architectural legacy that Lincoln already possesses.

Our Vision

Our vision for this development has come from the City of Bath, the home of the grand sweeping Georgian crescent and the perfectly symmetrical circus. Lincoln also boasts many fine period buildings, exhibiting eye catching Palladian, Neo-Classical and Regency Architectural detailing, and like Bath, it too is a city with an ancient Roman past whose architecture is in part at the root of all Georgian building design.

The Colosseum is the crescent, the landmark development of homes, that uphill Lincoln has been missing for centuries, which we have now built for you. Each house in the crescent has been named after a Great British Poet.

The only question I have for you now is, which Poet will your home be named after?

A Brief History of Lincoln

The Romans conquered this part of Britain in AD 48 and built a legionary fortress high on a hill overlooking the natural lake formed by the widening of the River Witham (the modern day Brayford Pool). The Celtic name Lindon was subsequently Latinised to Lindum and given the title Colonia when it was converted into a settlement for army veterans.

The city has seen many cycles of economic growth and decline over the centuries. In the middle ages wool trading brought great wealth and the city benefitted from the county’s agrian boom in the eighteenth century. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Lincoln became a centre for mechanical engineering and it is here that a revolutionary development in warfare equipment, the Tank, helped to break the back of the trench warfare that cost the lives of so many millions of soldiers in the First World War.

The tradition of heavy engineering continues on in Lincoln today with Siemens, one of it's largest employers. There is now an even broader range of manufacturing and service industries, which in conjunction with the introduction of the Lincoln University and improved communications has seen the city’s economy grow significantly over the last two decades.

Come and be part of this buzzing city’s success!


Lincoln and Lincolnshire are known for producing well educated talent. In the uphill district of the city there is private education with the very well respected Lincoln Minster School catering for ages of between 2 and 18. There are other respected primary and secondary schools to choose from in the area, many of which are only a convenient walk or a short car journey away.

For those in search of higher education there is Bishops Grosseteste University only a few yards away from the The Colesseum on the opposite side of the Newport and by the Brayford Wharf marina is the main campus of Lincoln University, which has been carving out a national reputation for success and over the last ten years has added great vibrance to the culture and business of the city.

Food & Drink

As for refreshment, Lincoln is overflowing with cafés and tea rooms ready to dish up the necessary. Catch up over coffee and a cake, or pause on Steep Hill and share a classic English afternoon tea, as an excuse to catch your breath before continuing your climb up the cobbled street to the cathedral. There is an outstanding range of places to eat lining the streets of both uphill and downhill Lincoln. Think British, or French, Greek, or Italian dining and you will find it. Branch out and enjoy the taste of the Far East, or Mexico. When the sun’s out, nothing beats dining al fresco on the terrace of the Brayford Wharf or even on a floating river barge. And don’t forget the city’s many pubs, bars and restaurants selling a great variety of homemade food and more upmarket quality cuisine.

Culture & Entertainment

From the Colosseum it is for most, just an easy walk or cycle ride away into the cultural heart of uphill Lincoln – the cathedral quarter. The Castle is at present undergoing a major refurbishment with a new museum soon to be completed for showcasing the Magna Carta. The towering presence and shadow of the cathedral, possibly the finest example of English Gothic architecture, is never far away, and it runs a range interesting cultural events for the community and tourists throughout the year. Leading away south from Castle Square is the famous cobbled historic street, Steep Hill. It is aptly named, as in parts it has a 1 in 7 gradient! It won the award for ‘Britain's Greatest Street’ in the Urbanism Awards of 2012.


Lincoln shopping has a distinctive uphill and downhill split. In the uphill Bailgate shopping district of the cathedral quarter and on Steep Hill, you have classy boutiques, fine wine merchants, tasty treats in a delicatessen; quality furnishings, a variety of art, design and crafts shops and of course even an old second hand book shop. Downhill there is the pedestrianised High Street running through historic Stonebow with its wide range of national retail brand names and the accompanying Waterside and St Marks shopping areas. The Lincoln Christmas Market is now one of the largest festive events in Europe, attracting in the region of 250,000 visitors from the UK and abroad each year. It is an eclectic mix of fun, food, shopping and entertainment not to be missed!

Location And Communication

Lincoln has good communication links into the heart of rural Lincolnshire. The A158 offers a direct route east to the rolling countryside of Lincolnshire Wolds and the East Coast resorts and sandy beaches.

The A46 runs north to the port of Grimsby and the M180 takes a direct route north to the M180 near Scunthorpe. The A46 also sweeps around the city and out west to the A1 and Newark with its direct high speed rail link to London Kings Cross (1 hour 20 minutes).

The new A46 dual carriageway then heads on to provide quick access to Nottingham and Leicester. To the south there are good road connections through to the towns of Sleaford and Grantham.

The Lincoln Central railway station offers a long route journey to London St Pancras as well as connections into the Midlands and the national network as a whole.

To the north just off the M180 is Humberside Airport, which provides an air link to London and other regional airports in the UK, as well as flights into Europe.
