In the year 1160, the 'High Bridge' was built in the centre of Lincoln. Essentially a stone bridge with originally a chapel upon it. Now, timber framed shops stand where the chapel once stood. High Bridge cafe is a well known landmark to Lincoln locals.
The cafe was born out of a desire to quench the caffeine riddled thirst of Baron Curfew. The bridge still stands to this very day and is purported to be the only remaning bridge of it's type in the UK that you can still travel under by boat and shop within. Not at the same time, that would be a miracle
