Once again we were asked to provide and install temporary walkways and hard standing areas for the annual Lincoln Christmas market. Having designed the layout for the market several years ago, we are always delighted to be asked to undertake this exciting festive project. As a national heritage site it is critical that due care, attention and diligence is paid to the surrounding areas both within the Castle grounds and also the neighbouring gardens. We selected EFS Temp-A-Path® as the ideal solution for this bespoke installation within the selected areas, protecting the grounds of this historical site and allowing access for pedestrians and vehicles alike. Site installation details for the Temp-A-Path® product are as follows:- • Within the Castle grounds, we supplied and installed 2,300m² which protected the lawned area and also provided a walkway to other venues. • For the insides of the sales marquees in the surrounding Gardens we installed 360m² • Additionally we laid 500m² around the surrounding areas as temporary walkways. With over 250,000 people attending the Christmas Market over 4 days in December, Lincoln is regarded as the largest Christmas event of its kind.

For this year’s annual medieval Christmas market we were asked by Dakin Events to provide protective flooring for both inside and outside of the Castle keep. Our products offered protection for the grounds and lawns whilst also providing safe walkways throughout the site. For the build up of the marquees and general access areas we supplied and installed 500m² of Hex Road – this was largely outside of the Castle Keep. Whilst within the Castle walls, for the stallholders, entertainers and visitors, we supplied and installed 1,400m² of our Temp-A-Path® product. The annual Medieval Christmas Fayre in Ludlow is described as the best medieval show in the land with over 100 stalls selling seasonal gifts with a distinct medieval flavour. This year’s weekend event attracted more music, minstrels, merriment and mirth than ever before and was certainly a great treat for all of the family, set within the glorious grounds of the medieval Ludlow Castle.
