Imp number 2

If you read the history of the Lincoln Cathedral Imp, you will know that there were 2 Imps, while one was turned to stone by the Angel for reaking havoc in Lincoln Cathedral the other fled, well - I have found the 2nd Imp, he is living in a tree stump just as you are about to travel over the Humber Bridge taking you into Yorkshire.
This story now leads me into my next session of photos which is from Hull and the Deep.

Mac: Neat capture of the little Imp, he couldn't hide from you.

You could have used Lincoln Cathedral for your headbanger, as it was used in the DaVinci code.

I think that imp is downright cute!

I'm glad you've accounted for both imps. It wouldn't do to have one running around in unknown quarters.

That's a really nice carving and very interesting find. I've heard those little buggers can be quite elusive. :)
