A record-breaking crowd of almost 1,800 visitors braved inclement weather to look round the University of Lincoln at the weekend.


A total of 1,755 visitors - 654 of whom were prospective students - attended the university’s latest open day on Saturday.


Visitors were able to get their first glimpse of the university’s new £10 million Lincoln School of Architecture building which opened last month.


Shuttle buses also allowed visitors to take tours of the Cathedral Campus (Lincoln School of Art & Design) and Riseholme Park (Lincolnshire School of Agriculture).


"As the university grows in popularity, so our open days are becoming busier and busier," said recruitment officer Rebecca Coulton, who helped organise the event.


"Our next open day is on Saturday 24th January and we're expecting another big crowd."
