UP NORTH on tour with Sue and Winnie #2

Hi again folks,
the following morning we upsticks and got the bus into the City of Lincoln, the main reason was to look around the Cathedral and a bit of retail therapy in the City

What a fantastic Cathedral, view of the East Window and the Chapter House to the right.

The Cathedral has three towers and is the third largest in the country.

The Bishop's Eye window on the South side, more on this when we enter the Cathedral.

Very interesting main door.

Ornate vertical columns on each side.

Close up of one of the decorated columns.

Originally the Cathedral had spires on top of the towers but over time they came down.

Lastly before we entered, a look at the city gate.

 Hope you enjoyed the exterior, next blog we delve inside. Thanks for looking Mike
