Last week, I went up to Lincoln for the day to do some research on a 15th century manor house. Unfortunately, the archive experience was rather disappointing and unsuccessful but once they closed I was able to go exploring the city, photographing lovely things...
The walk up Steep Hill (yes, that's the name of a street):
Carving on the great west door of Lincoln Cathedral:
Around the Cathedral precinct:
It must be said that I'm not always one for medieval, Gothic buildings but Lincoln Cathedral is really something else. Truly awe-inspiring and astoundingly beautiful:
More exploring around the Cathedral precinct:
The trip back down Steep Hill:
Unfortunately, not only the archives but practically everything in Lincoln seems to shut at 4pm! That meant that I just had to gaze lustily through the windows of pretty shops selling antiques, prints and vintage clothes:
I think a proper trip to Lincoln is definitely on the cards. Perhaps even an overnight stay, in order to fit in the Cathedral, the Castle and all the delightful shops...
