University, jobs, general living

I am going to Lincoln on an exchange in September and I wanted to know a little about the area. Are there any interesting historical sites around? Would you suggest hiring a car to drive around Scotland/Wales/general area? Is it relatively easy to get a job there - I'm looking for part time work (bloody Australian dollar being 40p) something in the retail industry, probably. I can get a british passport too as my mother was born in the UK, would anyone advise getting the British one instead of using my Aussie one?

there is tons of history in and around Lincoln, you will be able to build a great travel page. Go up to Edinburgh and then to the Highlands of Scotland if you get chance, take a tent and camp if you are on a budget (and it is summer) Do a google search for jobs in Lincoln to give you an idea of what is available, the UK Labour Market is heavy on the supply side just now, particularly since the expansion of the EC, but people like Aussies and you should get something in retail, not least because you speak the language. I have no idea about passports. sorry

Lincoln itself has Roman and Medieval history, visit Ely (fairly nearby)for more Medieval + cathedral explorations. Explore Yorkshire (especially york) and Northumberland (Lindisfarne, Hadrian's Wall etc) before you get up to Scotland. Loads of history nearly everywhere in the UK.....get hold of any OS (ordnance survey) map to give you ideas. Local libraries have them if you don't want to buy, or there are maps online at www.getamap.com (or maybe .co.uk). Hiring a car is certainly the easiest way to get to many sites, (public transport in the UK is neither partiicularly good nor extensive) but will depend on your funds. Petrol is expensive here, and journeys always take longer than map distances might suggest (small roads/ lots of traffic/ roadworks etc). I suspect you'll be able to find part-time bar work in Lincoln, possibly shop work too. Don't know if your passport status matters when it comes to working, might be worth investigating what the rules are if you just have your Aussie one?

I think maybe leics is too modest to recommend that you visit her home and travel pages, so I will.

Travel Tips for Lincoln

Signing......................

by leics

I was really impressed by the signing in Lincoln (historical quarter). Signs were sensibly placed, useful, informative and detailed. They've also provided little machines where you can buy a map.........very sensible idea (though I didn't buy one).

St Mary's Le Wigford

by leics

You'll have to walk down into the main part of Lincoln to find St Mary's Le Wigford. Just keep going straight, through Stonebow and onwards and you can't miss it. It's a Norman church, right next to the railway line . I noticed it because of the conduit, which was built in the mid-16th century to provide fresh water for the local inhabitants. I wish I'd gone inside the church itself, because I've since found out it has many interesting bits and pieces.

Site of St. Paul-in-the-Bail

by iwys

This is the site of one of the earliest Christian churches in England. A timber church was built here in the late 4th century. This was followed by a medieval stone church, whch was demolished in 1971. There were later archaeological excavations. Then these were grassed over and a small garden was laid out here.

It is next to the big Westgate car park.

The Tournai Font

by iwys

The twelfth century font in Lincoln Cathedral was made from Tournai limestone. It is believed that Bishop Alexander ordered the font after he saw a similar one at Winchester Cathedral in 1141. The limestone was shipped from France to Boston and then up the River Witham to Lincoln.

The font was polished to give it the appearance of black marble. It consists of a large square bowl on four colonettes. The top of the bowl is decorated with carvings of leaves and roses, whilst the grotesque figures and lions climbing up the sides of the bolw are thought to represent the orginal sin that the baptism willl remove.

Medieval Bishop's Palace

by iwys

When the Bishop's Palace was built in the 12th century, it was one of the most important buildings in Britain: "the seat of power, from the Humber to the Thames, for nearly 500 years". It was the administrative centre of the largest diocese in England.

Both Henry VIII and James I were guests of bishops here.
