The Newport Arch in Lincoln is to benefit from a £60,000 grant towards its maintenance and management.

The grant, awarded by not-for-profit company WREN, is part of its £585,000 Heritage Fund which helps to protect Grade one and two star listed buildings and structures of historical importance.

Newport Arch is the 3rd century northern gateway to the Roman city of Lindum Colonia and is the oldest Roman archway in the country which spans a road still used by traffic.

The upper part of Newport Arch is currently covered in netting to prevent masonry falling on pedestrians and vehicles but the funding will be used to protect the monument.
