Lincoln Imp


Today I left the stately hotel and took a drive into Lincoln. I have not been to the city in years. I think my last visit was in 1988. It feels quite a buoyant city with the cathedral, the castle and all the old shops. In many ways I think it is a more appealing city for visitors than Nottingham is. It feels like the council has done more to make the city a tourist destination, with the new waterfront area, with its cinema, bars and attractions. I went inside the cathedral, but you have to pay to look round. As I didn't have a great deal of time, I spent a short time inside. I took this photo of the colour from the stained glass windows that appeared on the floor, which was caused by the sun's rays. For those that don't know, Lincoln Cathedral was used as Westminster Abbey in the film the DaVinci Code. I've not seen the film yet, so when I do, I should be able to spot some familiar sights
