Paying homage to history at Romans Walk

Nowadays a charming market town, like many rural areas, historically Caistor saw significant deprivation. At its height in the 1880s, the Victorian Caistor Workhouse provided accommodation to some 180 individuals who had fallen into destitution.

In the 1930s, the workhouse was converted into an institution for people living with learning disabilities. In 1948 the site passed into the hands of the National Health Service, to become known as Caistor Hospital. Eventually the outmoded facility closed in 1990 and fell into neglect, until the scenic location was regenerated into cherished homes by Cannon Kirk.

On November 19, 2022, a monument featuring salvaged materials from the Caistor Hospital chapel will be unveiled to commemorate the history of the Romans Walk location.

Attending officials will include the Chair of West Lindsey District Council, Angela Lawrence, Caistor Mayor, Jon Wright, Canon Reverend Ian Robinson, Parish Priest, and David King, a member of the Friends of Caistor Hospital.
