We arrived in Lincoln mid afternoon and laboured our roundabout way up to the old Bishops Palace to find our rather marvellous accommodations...
This is my bedroom window
Here's me Mam, lording it up (or I suppose, Ladying it up...)
I stood right next to Mike Leigh while he was grumping about a take not being quite right...
He's directing a film about the Peterloo massacre in Manchester in 1817 and they were shooting this scene all afternoon, just a few steps away from our hotel. Those extras looked like they were getting hotter and hotter in all those wooly clothes, poor buggers.

I took a couple of little vids of the filming, just for kicks. Look out for this when you see the movie!

Now I'm sitting in my window, looking out over the far distant flat fenland watching a lightning storm. But before the rain really tipped it down - here's how light it was at 10pm.
I love this time of year!

I think Mum's enjoying it too, though her room downstairs isn't as fancy as this one, having a smaller window. So she's coming up here to read her book.

That window is AMAZING! I love the shadows it casts<3 I can imagine feeling very ladylike in that room.

How cool to see Mike Leigh at work; the clothes of the extras seem very fitting for the town, the technicians on set look like the odd ones out:)

It was really nice to get photos of Lincoln with the extras instead of modern people!

I love the cathedral end of Lincoln, it reminds me a lot of York. Your hotel is stunning! Now that's what I call a room with a view :)
Did you go up there specifically to watch the filming, or was that just a happy coincidence?

Yes, it's like York in miniature and with fewer tourists, which is nice. And nope, the filming was just happenstance - they were only here one day too!
