History Of Lincoln, part deux

History Of Lincoln, part deux

The rocker, still called Andy, after a prolonged campaign, was duly granted the status of a Baron-hood. Essentially for no other reason than the fact that he wanted one. The City rallied round in support of the newly formed Baron and raised the funds to erect a cathedral in his honour and thus Lincoln Cathedral was built. Granted, it was built a thousand years before his birth, however the people of Lincoln are never short of foresight.

Briefly the tallest building in the world, until a minor earthquake caused the collapse of the highest spire (true) the cathedral still stands atop Lindum Hill

I know, they put a blue plaque there in your honour.

I insisted :)

Perfect example of magnificent architecture.

They must have been gutted when you chose to marry elsewhere ?? xx

Such foresight!

I'm loving this history lesson. I've never managed to go inside this magnificent building as yet. Might save this for another trip down south.
