A historic Roman lane connecting uphill and downhill Lincoln received a special spring clean as part of a nation-wide campaign for the Queen of England’s 90th birthday.

Clean for the Queen is a campaign launched by County Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy.

A group representing the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia came together to clean up Motherby Hill, Lincoln.

The group says undergrowth from a nearby waste ground has invaded the lane, which is part of the city’s Roman Trail.

Motherby Lane was built on top of the Roman city walls. The lower west gate is located at the bottom of Motherby Hill where it joins West Parade, although this is now buried under tarmac.

Jo Owens, president of the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia said: ‘This was a great opportunity for the club to get involved with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations and make a positive impact in our beautiful city.”
