The United Kingdom is steeped in History, and has been invaded by many Countries through-out the years, but we have also invaded many Countries, it must be that MAN likes to want more and more land - it would be nice to see ev1 work together and look after our Planet.
My Header and Post of Lew's theme HISTORIC this week is of LINCOLN CITY - the capital of Lincolnshire County.
The Mighty Lincoln Cathedral - sat upon the Hill.
This photo was taken from the Walls of Lincoln Castle.
Step back in Time, Lincoln was a Roman City, but it was the Normans who left the Finest reminders of the past.
Lincoln City Cathedral 900yrs old and Lincoln Castle crowns the city of Lincoln on the mighty hill called Steep Hill.
Here are a few shots of the Cathedral
Now to go and have a peek inside of Lincoln Cathedral
As you can see - when the sun shines - the Cathedral is a mass of coloured Light from the Stained Glass windows
A few more shots from inside- before we go and walk around outside
Now lets have a walk round outside of the Cathedral
Here we have the entrance of the Lincoln Imp, the story goes that he was dropped by wind in Jakes Garden, causing Havoc, He's small but wild, a Magical Trickster and a Practical Joker.
He now sits crossed legged on a Pillar inside the Cathedral
They say one day he will -----maybe?
Her's a few photos around the outside of the Cathedral.
Norman built, has the cities Court and still is use
today. The Castle also Houses Lincoln's Original copy of the Magna Carta sealed by King John in 1215 which is on show to the public at certain times.
Here's a few shots from the Castle.
From the Cathedral and Castle we walk down The Steep Hill - "its Namesake"
Believe me - its steeper than it looks,lol
On Steep Hill we have the Jews House, 12th century stone.
