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
