Green Dragon Pub Lincoln

I worked on the Green Dragon pub as an apprentice electrician when it was refurbished by Lucas and sons in the late 60's early 70's .I also remember the copper bar and all the workmens names are written on an oak beam as you enter the pub. Happy days!!!

About this photo

Here Broadgate starts to climb out of the valley. Whites Mineral Waters was rebuilt in 1994 as a county library, but the battlemented and towered former Drill Hall of 1890 survives. Beyond, at the corner of Silver Street, is the old Constitutional Club of 1895, lots of blood red terra cotta, with the Usher Gallery beyond.

The Drill Hall (left), which was then the HQ of the 4th Battalion Royal Lincolnshire Regiment, has recently had a complete restoration; it reopened on 20 March 2004 to resume its place in the entertainment life of Lincoln. The Duke of Wellington pub next door was built in 1933. Messrs Parke & White of 45 Broadgate (extreme left) closed in 1958, and the site is now the new and expanded Lincoln City Library. The road is now divided, with crossing places for pedestrians. This is now an extremely busy road, and there is a host of traffic lights where five roads meet at the bottom of Lindum Hill, just about where the car is coming down the road.
