Lincoln

All these pictures were taken near the entrance to the cathedral. The street in the main picture is called Steep Hill. It is steep! In 2011 it was voted Britain's Best Place by The Academy of Urbanism (whatever that is). It has lots of little interesting shops, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. The green shop on the right of the street and in the top right picture is one which Jane @chimfa with. Phil @phil_sandford and Babs @onewing are all familiar with Lincoln so this collage is especially for them.
Wonderful collage Sue of the Bailgate (or up-hill asit's also known. Steep Hill is exactly that, steep. For everbody who thinks Lincolnshire is like a billiard table, it is, apart from the glacial ridge that runs the length of the county, and in which Lincoln City is situated.
I'm pleased you enjoyed the city to have taken and posted so many great photographs.

Fabulous collage, all great shots. You were lucky to get empty streets. It was packed with people in this area when I went there last year. Fav

Did you see the Jew's House? It's at the bottom of Steep Hill, I think, and is the oldest house in Lincoln dating back to around 1150.

Fabulous collage. Lincoln hasn't changed a bit in 40 years. Fancy the pie shop still being there Jane @chimfa
Did you buy a pie Sue? David would have been in there like a shot.

@phil_sandford Thank you Phil. We weren't there for long enough so we will have to go back. We have a good excuse because our friends live there.

@shepherdman Thank you shepherdman. There are lots of picures of the cathedral prior to this one which might also bring back memories.

@judithdeacon Thank you Judith. We did see the cheese shop but we were being very well fed in our hotel so we didn't buy any.

@dsp2 @happysnaps @beryl Thank you ladies. I was very impressed with Lincoln as you can probably tell.

@foxes37 Yes we did Lis but actually we do need to go back. One short weekend is just not long enough to see everything properly in this beautiful city.

@aglennc Thank you Anita. You'd love with it's interesting little shops selling all sorts of things. You might not like walking back up though.

@onewing Thank you Babs. Unfortunately you can't just go in and buy a pie (or Chris too would have been in like a shot). It's a restaurant rather than a shop and we had a table booked somewhere else. Next time we go to Lincoln Chris and I will make sure we eat here.

@gilbertwood @susie1205 Thank you for your nice comments.

@dizzyd Thank you Helen. Those pictures were actually taken on Sunday morning about 10.00 am. It was raining and the cathedral was closed unless you were attending the service so there were very few people about. It was a completely different story the previous day, Saturday, when the sun was shining. There were people everywhere.

@susiemc You are right about the shops and the walk back up.

Love these streets and buildings. This really makes me want to visit Lincoln someday.
