Dore Avenue


Dore Avenue Character Area lies between Newark Road and Lincoln Road, immediately southwest of the Lincoln city boundary. The Character Area is an example of the changing trends of mid to late 20th century residential expansion in both council provided and private housing.
The area retains races of its historical past, including the 19th century Old Vicarage, and a 19th century farmhouse and the alignment of several 18th century field boundaries preserved in the form of footpaths or boundaries between housing plots.
The area has a strongly coherent character as the majority of development dates to the late Post-war [1946 – 1966 AD] and early Modern Period [1967-present]. However, there are subtle variations between the individual build units that make up the Character Area. Residential properties, alongside a few civic buildings, are arranged around a loose grid pattern of circular streets, and a series of connecting routes joining the main Lincoln and Newark Roads.
