The imaginatively named 'Steep Hill' (really) was named Britain's most attractive street in 2011. Once the major route from the numerous dwellings in medieval Lincoln to the cathedral, now a timber framed shop lined route from the major shopping street in Lincoln City centre up to the 'Cathedral Quarter' where the majority of tourists immediately head.
But, in truth, 'Steep Hill was the chosen 'walk-way' to the first generation Baron Curfew's vast expanse of land. The route was tortuous enough to prevent the majority of peasants venturing too close. Those that managed were easily dispatched down the hill with a single blow from a rudimentary mallet and a quick shove.
