The view from our breakfast room in Lincoln...
P1450249
So we can try and spot the peregrine falcons while having our toast and marmalade in honour of Michael Bond and Paddington Bear.
Also...
gratuitous shots of the cathedral at night, and inside the roof area. I did a roof tour yesterday, which was fascinating.

The wonky arches - they look very much more misaligned from up here than they do from the ground!
P1450275
inside the roof of the nave, above the wonky arches
P1450281
Don't disturb the bells...!
P1450278
Bell ropes that we didn't touch so (hopefully) didn't upset the poor bells
P1450279
Castle on the right, with the cathedral from an angle that makes it look like the towers are all the same height.
P1450357
The light is partly sunset, and partly floodlighting.
If you're a sucker for punishment, I'm loading lots more pics on Flickr in a Lincoln album HERE. They aren't captioned yet though, I'll have to get round to that tonight before I forget where everything is!

You'd love it, I'm sure! I don't know why all the Americans go to York and miss out Lincoln. :D

There are so many gorgeous and interesting cities with cathedrals, and I like the smaller ones - I'd highly recommend Chichester and Norwich too.

It makes you wonder what those medieval masons were on when they laid that nave out...

Lincoln Cathedral has got to be one of the most beautiful in the country, the pictures are stunning.
What sort of building is your hotel? From the architecture of the wondows it looks like it might once have been connected with the cathedral?

The hotel rooms are in a 19th C chapel of some sort and the Theological college use part of the building, then for breakfast you have to walk across to the main building which is still being used by the Bishop, not sure what for exactly. There's nothing outside to tell you it's a hotel, we weren't even sure we'd found the right place when we arrived the other day! Oh and the medieval Bishop's palace is in the same grounds as this building.

Oh lovely. I haven't been to Lincoln for a long time except for work; it's nice to see it showing its best side!

that pic of the ceiling ribs is amazing! and the one inside the roof is too. i love getting to look inside buildings to see how they're put together. i'm glad you didn't touch the ropes and upset the bells. no one wants an upset bell. that last pic is the best, tho, with the sunset on the cathedral towers.

We're just been out to have another gander at a sunset and I've taken more cathedral pics. The blooming thing is just too photogenic! LOL

Wow, how beautiful! We've never been to Lincoln, but it's very similar looking to Bath and Wells and we loved it there, so much gorgeous architecture :)
