Paul Cummins and Tom Piper’s dramatic poppies sculpture is now installed at Lincoln Castle and will be on show until September 4.

Initially part of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London in 2014, the Weeping Window cascade of ceramic poppies can be seen pouring from a high window to the ground below.

The sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks is also on display.

In their original setting the sculptures captured the public imagination and were visited by more than five million people.

The poppies are presented by 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of the First World War.
