Heart #12 Exchequer Gate, Lincoln

Built in Lincoln

by Mel Langton

About the HeART

This is one of two hearts commissioned by Chestnut Homes, which are similar in design but that have been tailored to their specific locations.

The Lincoln heart design combines familiar scenes from across the city, including landmarks such as Lincoln Cathedral, Bomber Command and the Red Arrows, with imagery more associated with construction. This bold and colourful design will help to gain interest from a new generation and encourage them to get involved in the career of construction.
