Lindum Lodge remand home for boys Sewell Road Lincoln
« on: Sunday 09 June 19 23:09 BST (UK) »
Hello

I'd be very grateful if anyone could provide any information at all regarding Lindum Lodge remand home for boys that was on Sewell Road in Lincoln. The Church of England Temperance Society founded the home and it closed down many years ago.
Around 1943, give or take a year or so either side, my Grandfather was in the remand home for a few months. He was around age 10 at the time.
Can anyone confirm the exact location of where Lindum Lodge was or provide any information at all regarding the home, staff, children, daily routine etc?
Many thanks.

Welcome to Rootschat
It was located on Sewell Rd Lincoln.
Purchased in 1925 by the Society and converted into a home for "Friendless and Homeless Boys'
Most of the records are subject to 100 year closure because they contain details to young offenders.

Thank you Fisherman.

I'm wondering if Lindum House is now on the site of where Lindum Lodge was?
I'm pretty sure the original Lindum Lodge was demolished. CETS (Church of England Temperance Society) worked with the police at Lindum Lodge and would eventually go on to found what is now known as the probation service.
They opened up Craigslands after Lindum but that was after my Grandfather's time.

Unsure if it's on the site of the Lodge but it is on the same road.

Lindum House and Lindum Lodge are both shown shown on this 1938 map https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/498422/371738/12/101231
Change the zoom as necessary
