Follow a trail of 36 Knight sculptures throughout Lincoln to mark 800 years since the Battle of Lincoln and the sealing of the Charter of the Forest.

The sculpture trail consists of 36 knights which represent the two main figures of the 1217 Battle of Lincoln - Nicola de la Haye (Custodian of Lincoln Castle) and William Marshall (Regent to the young King Henry III). Also look out for designs to represent the Charter of the Forest.

Each sculpture has been sponsored by a local business and painted by a talented artist, with a hidden symbol on each. Find each symbol and complete the quest to receive a certificate and badge, plus discount off an exclusive Battle of Lincoln children's book.

After the trail, the sculptures will be sold at auction in Lincoln Cathedral to raise money for The Nomad Trust. This local charity which serves the homeless community of Lincoln and provides emergency accommodation for those who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets.
