  • Description

Lincoln offers a wonderful mix of ancient and modern architecture. The Cathedral is spectacularly placed and it towers over the city and can be seen for up to 25 miles away. This stunning building and the nearby Castle form the core of the ‘Uphill’ historic area, with its cobbled streets, medieval buildings and specialist shops including boutiques, craft, book and gift shops.

Look out for the notorious ‘Lincoln Imp’, a stone carving in the Cathedral which has become the city emblem. Descend Steep Hill and pass through the Stonebow to enter the ‘Downhill’ area with its modern pedestrianised shopping facilities.

Brayford Pool has been transformed with the establishment of the University and the waterfront has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere with its bars and restaurants. One of the latest developments is The Collection, a fantastic new museum combining archaeological finds with fine, decorative and visual arts.

Come and explore the history and heritage, marvel at the achievements of our ancestors in building the magnificent Cathedral, and enjoy all the facilities of a modern, flourishing city, through the medium of this superb collection of images in this handy, pocket-sized souvenir.

Janet and Peter Roworth share a background in farming and a concern for the natural and built environment. Janet’s photography developed from her interest in local history, buildings and architecture. She is a freelance family history researcher and has an MA in local history. Peter has worked in conservation for over 30 years and is currently employed by Natural England. His photography has been a life-long interest, specializing in landscape and agricultural subjects, and he is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

The couple live in Lincolnshire, and their work has featured in numerous previous Halsgrove publications including Moods of Lincolnshire and Portrait of Lincoln.
