Living in Lincoln

by breeze55

I am thinking to coming back from the Middle East to live in Lincoln next year.
I would appreciate any comments people may have about living in Lincoln, the good things, the bad things, and any general comments

Re: Living in Lincoln

by Sjalen

Are you originally from the area and wonder about changes or why Lincoln?

I have my sister-in-law/niece-in-law there and although Lincolnshire itself is too flat for my liking, Lincoln itself is a nice and relaxed city. It has more life to it these days too as the university has grown. The only thing I wonder about is the water quality. There is 1) a lot of intense agriculture around 2) loads of old and new air bases with ar fuel. There has been suggestions that this creates some health problems. But that's about the only thing I can say as a negative aspect. Houses are still amongst the cheapest in England since it's not along the main London-Edinburgh line but they are now on the rise since there are now more frequent train connections to London daily so Lincoln is becoming a commuter alternative.

Re: Living in Lincoln

by Britannia2

I live about miles from Lincoln - its an OK sort of place and all the major stores are there now. Eating out is good but I am too old to comment on the nightlife. Friends tell me the only downside is a lack of sports facilities - there is not even a good size swimming pool. House prices are good too and there are some nice areas around town to live. For a feel of Lincoln listen to Lincs FM on the net.

Travel Tips for Lincoln

Cathedral Hill

by Sjalen

If you have never been to Lincoln before, the Cathedral area is what you should stick to. A small area on top of the hill gives you both cathedral, castle and some nice shops and pubs. Wandering around places where my husband has had fun in his youth (his sister lives here).

Ghost Walks

by Cheersmates

Every Wed-Sat in front of the castle, you can go for a ghost walk with a guide that will talk about the ghosts of Lincoln. It's nice in the spring or a summer night to walk about. But since it happens all year long, you can go in the summer

St. Hugh's Head Shrine

by iwys

St. Hugh was born in 1135 at Avalon castle in Burgundy. He became a Carthusian monk and studied at Grande Chartreuse. He was then sent to England to become the prior of the country' first Carthusian monastery, at Witham in Somerset. Whilst there, he supervised the building of Charterhouse. In 1180, he was elected Bishop of Lincoln by a council, called by King Henry II. He was consecrated at Westminster Abbey, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1181, and enthroned in Lincoln Cathedral eight days later.

He rebuilt Lincoln Cathedral, after it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1185. In 1190 and 1191, he denounced the mass persecution of the Jews, facing down armed mobs. He was present at King John's coronation in 1199 and died at the London residence of the Bishop of Lincoln in 1200. King John assisted in carrying his coffin to his resting-place. After St. Hugh's relics were enshrined in Lincoln Cathedral, it became one of the main pilgrimage centres in England.

Photograph the Jew's House.................

by leics

.....because it's a rare example of Norman domestic architecture. We have lots of Norman castles, cathedrals and churches in the UK, but few other buildings. Built around 1290, on Steep Hill, it got its name because it belonged to a Jewish family in the later Middle Ages. There's a restaurant in there now (haven't been in)

Jew's House and Jew's Court

by iwys

Jew's House, in Steep Lane, was built between 1150 and 1160, making it one of the oldest surviving domestic dwellings in England. Jew's Court, next door, was built several centuries later. It is so named because it was adjacent to a synagogue and was a meeting place for the Jewish community.
