Sleeping Inside Lincoln Castle - a Memory of Lincoln.

My Grandfather, Harry Westwood, was custodian at the Castle for many years, retiring in 1966.  He passed the position to his son Tom Westwood, my uncle.  Tom retired in 1986. As a child I would sleep inside the castle gatehouse at weekends, but since Tom Westwood retired in 1986, I believe that the castle is now managed by Lincolnshire County Council without having a resident custodian living on ther premises.

I was in a boys home in about 1950 at seem to have memories of going to a school near the castle. I thought it was called the castle school but that does not show up anywhere now. also, the name of the boys home escapes me, if I ever knew it, I would have been about 6 years old at the time. can anyone help me with this? my grandchildren are asking me about it and.
