Travel Tips for Lincoln

The View from Afar

by iwys

As Lincoln stands on the only major hill in the very flat county of Lincolnshire, the city can be seen from miles away. Driving towards, it the first sight you will see of the city is the cathedral and what you think is the castle, but actually that other tall building is in fact the water tower.

It is not easy to stop and take a photograph, however, as tha A46 is a busy, narrow road, with few covenient places to stop. Although, I had some nice views of the city from 20 miles away, I could not find a place to park my car by the roadside until i was much nearer.

The Crooked House

by iwys

The Crooked House in Michaelgate, was built around 1500. As you would expect of a crooked house, it has a winding staircase. It is owned by the National Trust and is available for rent all the year round. It can accommodate four people and it is wonderfully crooked!

Lincoln Castle

by LizD

Set on the hill above the City of Lincoln is Lincoln Castle which was build by William the Conqueror in 1068, two years after the battle of Hastings. For 900 years it was used as a court and prison where guilty prisoners were either deported to Australia or executed on the ramparts.

Within the castle is a chapel with small partitioned pews. These are popular for many a courting couple who wish to have a few minutes alone. Little do they know that they were built like small coffins to remind the prisoners of their forthcoming fate.

Tallest building in the world (was)

by sourbugger

The magnificent achievement of Lincoln Cathedral was the tallest building on the planet for about 250 years. Unfortunately during a storm in 1549 the central tower (reminds me of the tower of Babylon ?) collapsed.

If that had not happened it would still have been the highest until the Washington monument was completed in 1884.

An impish little tip

by sourbugger

This amusing little carving can be found near the high altar at the rear of Lincoln Cathedral, at just above head height on the left hand side. It would appear that the stone carver came up with the the little statue himself - it doesn't have any religious connotations.

Local legend has it that the imp was blown to Lincoln on the winds during the building of the Cathedral. He caused amazing amounts of mayhem and confusion. As he surveyed his work he was turned into a statue by a passing angel.

Believe what you like, but the imp has become a symbol of the city, most obviously on the shirts of the 'red imps' - the Lincoln City Football club.
