Bransby Horses is an equine welfare charity which was founded in 1968. Since then Bransby have helped over 1000 animals. Our objective is to prevent and relieve cruelty to horses, ponies and donkeys, to protect them from unnecessary suffering and for that purpose to promote knowledge of their care and treatment among the public. We are completely funded by the generosity of public donations.Between our two sites in Lincolnshire and Herefordshire we have over 400 animals currently in our care, which keeps us constantly busy. The Bransby site near Lincoln is open to the public 365 days a year; it is a great day out for all the family with plenty to see and do. Unfortunately our Herefordshire site is not currently open to the public. We are now looking at the winter facilities that will be required to house the additional animals that we have in our care. Providingall weather paddocks will enable some of the fields to rest through the hardwinter months, providing excellent grazing through the spring and summer. « less

Access to this historic building is via the large double oak doors on the East Wing of the building on Saltergate and is of 15th and 16th century. On a visit you can walk through the Council Chamber, sit in the Mayor's chair and hear some of the tales of years gone by. The tour includes the old debtors prison which now houses some of the finest regalia in England beneath. Whilst in the Civic Insignia room, view the Royal Sword given to the City by Richard II, and the Mayor's Mace dated 1660, originally a defensive fighting weapon, but now carried before the Mayor on ceremonial occasions. See several chains of office, as well as the unique Mayor's posy ring which is only worn on two occasions: when being married to the City at the Annual Meeting and on the Mayor's "official" birthday a custom dating back to 1852.

The Co-operative was set up in 1994 by a group of local artists who decided to establish a much needed outlet for the contemporary visual arts in Lincoln, and HHG is now one of the most successful artist’s co-operatives in the country. We are a diverse group of artists or makers of contemporary craft, and between us we are entirely responsible for the staffing and daily functioning of the Gallery. Our members are also active in other areas such as teaching, running workshops, arts consultancy, exhibiting in and supplying galleries and stores around the country, and generally promoting the arts throughout the region. We are open every day from 10am - 5pm, and 11am - 4pm on Sundays (Except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day). « less
