Lincoln -Birthplace of the tank.
In the first world war tanks were instrumental in crossing the trenches and barbed wire landscape of No Mans Land to break the deadlock. The first tanks were designed and made by William Tritton, a Lincolnshire agricultural engineer. They went into mass production, many built by women, in Lincoln. To meet demand they were built in many other British Cities too. But new models were designed, developed and tested here in Lincoln, on what is now Tritton Road. See one of the tanks in the Lincolnshire Life Museum directly behind the house. At the end of Mill Road there is even an anti tank wall!
