Wright Vigar is delighted to congratulate our client R W Stokes & Sons on being given the green light to get started on a £1.5 million project.

The long-established Lincoln tea and coffee specialist – famed for its High Bridge Café and Stokes’ Collection Café – has been granted planning permission to forge ahead with plans to breathe new life into the city’s Lawn complex.

Managing Director Nick Peel’s vision includes the purchase of the Grade Two-listed property and its transformation into an exciting new visitor attraction.

It will feature an in-house roaster, packaging, storage and office facilities, a viewing area and a café restaurant. Future visitors will also be able to learn about the history of the building, which was a mental asylum in the 1800s.

Nick, who is keen to embark on the revamp as soon as possible, said his investment will create 16 (full-time equivalent) jobs and lead to 100 people working on the site.

Wright Vigar Director Pete Harrison: “We are delighted that Nick has been given the go-ahead for what promises to be a really exciting transformation of a landmark building in Lincoln.

“This project spells great news for jobs, supplier businesses and the city’s fast-growing visitor economy.”
