Lincoln


When I visited my sister recently, we went into the city of Lincoln for the day. It really is a beautiful old place, set on a steep hill so that the cathedral, in the oldest part of the city, towers above the more modern shopping areas. It also has a thriving and developing university, which is lower down, by the river.

The cobbled street leading up to the castle and cathedral is called Steep Hill, for obvious reasons!

  1. A relation of mine lived in Lincoln. Apparently American airmen in youthful high spirits started peeling the cathedral bells. As this was a signal of imminent invasion the bells caused quite a stir!
