Medieval castle tower to be opened up to the public for the first time

The last-standing remains of a medieval castle in Lincolnshire will be opened up to the public for the first time. The South Kyme Tower once formed one of the four corners of a castle, which was built on a Saxon site.

It is believed that the 14th century castle was once visited by Robin Hood and was built by a knight whose signature is on the Magna Carta.

The tower stands on private land and for years has been closed. But now, the landowner has agreed to open it up to the public, starting with the village's May Day Festival on May 1.
