    St Mary's Le Wigford

    St Mary's conduit.

    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.

    The Lincoln Ghost tour

    'Ghost walks' have taken off in many locations all of the UK. The one in Lincoln is a bargain at 4 quid and adult, and by all accounts I';ve heard it is one of the best.

    No booking required, but details are available from the Tourist information centre, from which they leave at 7PM thurs-sun.

    Frighteningly good.

    Go out and see the pretty lights

    Lincoln Univ Lib (from Lincoln. univ)

    On the townside of Brayford pool, just a 10 minute walk from the central shopping area are a number of new buildings connected with the University of Lincoln.

    Although perhaps not holding the highest academic reputation, it's architecture is impressive. The Library building in particular has cleverly converted one of the old railway warehouse building to a new use. Much of the old signage painted on the outside of the building has been retained.

    My favourite feature is however, the new staircase at the side of the building, which becomes a kind of modern art installation at night as various coloured lights weave various patterns from under the stairwells.

    The St. Mary Magdalene Chapel in Lincoln Cathedral can expect a big influx of visitors following the release of the film of "The Da Vinci Code".

    Castle Well

    The well inside the castle grounds, next to the bust of King George, is the only surviving Roman well in the city. The inmates of the castle prison used to do their laundry here.

    The 'Kinema In The Woods', it's a Cinema and it's in the woods, at Woodhall Spa (you can walk easily). It's the oldest back-projected cinema left in operation in Britain.

    The Golf Hotel in Woodhall Spa. It's quiet nice, but we didn't stay there, just went there for lunch. It was a nice meal and quite reasonably priced, one of their 'Springtime Specials'.

    Woodhall Spa, a pleasant little former Spa town. A little bit 'stuck in the past', it's a pleasant place to vist, very quiet, quite pretty and some interesting things to see.
