Dragged the family to Lincoln specifically to see The Cathedral
. An off the radar town that is full of charm, at least in the historical center...a well preserved medieval core, and a stout Norman castle set upon a hill. The cathedral is an awe inspiring building, truly....the tallest building in Europe for nearly 300 years. Some Norman parts are still identifiable, but predominantly proper Gothic, from the 13th century. Amazingly, some of the stained glass is original. Inside, it is so massive the vaulted ceiling appeared to dim in haze, they were so distant.
Awe and wonder. Look for Lincolnshire Poacher if you are in the area.
