Accessibility on the farm

Disabled Access:

Please contact us in advance of attending to book disabled parking on the farm. We have a limited number of spaces on site. Email estatessupport@lincoln.ac.uk to book.

The farm is situated on concrete, there is a toilet that can accommodate accessibility aids including wheelchairs, but this does not have a changing mat.

Entry into the sheep shed is flat and the ground will be clear.

Viewing the roundhouse: during the event we will be allowing attendees to view the roundhouse from an indoor platform, this doesn’t have a lift but the stairs do have handrails all the way up. However, due to the nature of the roundhouse building, our Lincoln Red cattle can be viewed fully from the outside and information about our herd will be available to view.

If you have any specific concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us via the email listed above.
