As an enthusiastic Lincolnshire photographer, I had to photograph and document the sights of Lincoln.
The pictures below were taken within Lincoln, and also out within the larger Lincolnshire county.
A Short Introduction To Lincoln
For those not familiar with Lincoln, it’s all small cathedral city nestled in the heart of Lincolnshire, right on the border between the North and the South of England. Some would argue it’s more Northern than Southern? I stay away from that debate!
Grounded on thousands of years of history, Lincoln today is a growing and developing city. It’s not as big as somewhere like Sheffield or Leeds, but I think more like York? In both size and what is has to offer.
At the heart of Lincoln stands Lincoln University. An excellent and expanding education center offering more and more each year, and the Campus itself is such a pleasure to explore. The Lincoln High Street is regenerating, and changing to the demands of shoppers seeing an influx of coffee shops! This isn’t a bad thing by the way. Finally, business in Lincoln seems to be “on the up”, so it’s a good time to be here.
Lincoln also boasts stunning “visible” history including the awe inspiring Cathedral, and several Roman ruins. No matter how many times you see these landmarks, they never lose their ability to inspire.
“Go beyond the city limits, and you have miles upon miles of open country, dotted with villages, beautiful coastlines, and many, many, many many fields.”
I hope to continually update this post with new photography, so please bookmark this page of subscribe to my blog! I hope you enjoy the views of this particular Lincolnshire photographer…
Lincoln Cathedral is set upon a hill.
The Cathedral is almost 1000 years old, and was the tallest building in the world for over 200 years.
It really is, quite awesome.
You can see it from almost anywhere in Lincoln.
You can see it from miles around.
The Lincoln Cathedral Quarter is a nice location for a stroll.
And there’s even somewhere to sit.
Afterwards, why not take a trip down the famous “Steep Hill”, and visit the shops along the way?
The Lincoln Steep Hill, going “down” is easier than walking “up”.
Down near the Brayford Pool, you will find plenty of nice restaurants and social entertainment.
The Brayford Pool is also home to some beautiful wildlife.
“Bee” careful not to get too close.
Some of the birds that fly around here in Lincolnshire, are quite big.
And awe inspiring.
We have fields in Lincolnshire.
Lots of fields.
We have some nice beaches.
And plenty of railway crossings, especially in Lincoln!
The traffic can be a bit busy at times.
But in the grand scheme of things, Lincoln and Lincolnshire really are quite beautiful.
