University plans to rename campus buildings after Lincolnshire's greatest minds
Lord Alfred Tennyson, Isaac Newton and Sir Joseph Banks are names that not only shaped the history of Lincolnshire, but the history of the world.
Some of the greatest minds and thinkers from across the ages were born and raised within our very boarders.
This is why the University of Lincoln is proposing to rename all of the buildings on its campus to reflect the contributions they have made to society.
From the first brick laid in 1996, the university has grown and grown, and is now one of the jewels of the city. Officially opened by the Queen, it was the first new city centre campus to be built in decades. The former Becor House building, which is being refurbished as part of the university and Lincolnshire Co-operative's science and innovation park, is the first to be renamed – after the famed botanist Sir Joseph Banks.

Banks, who grew up in Revesby, near Horncastle, was a naturalist and botanist who took part in Captain James Cook's first great voyage.
Other buildings in the running to be renamed include the main administration building, Bridge House, AAD, MHT and the science building.
And with such a plethora of Lincolnshire talent to choose from, the university wants your suggestions as to who should receive this honour.
Vice chancellor of the university Mary Stuart said: "The first building created on the Brayford Campus marked a unique point in history and shaped the idea that Lincoln would be a university with a difference.
"Since my arrival in 2009, the university has driven forward its reputation as being an institution of innovation and enterprise with an emphasis on research and research-engaged teaching.
"It is only right the names of our building reflect the incredible talent contained within."
