A Heritage Lincolnshire spokesman said: “Every year, Heritage Lincolnshire put together an education programme covering a variety of all topics, including Lincolnshire, history and heritage for people to enjoy, and even though we are in the pandemic, we are proud to say we are able to continue this so that people can enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

“Every talk that people attend means that we can continue the work that we complete throughout the county, working to conserve our rich history for the benefit of people who live and work in the area.”
