Lincoln Cathedral – At one time thought to be the highest building in the world, Lincoln Cathedral is a wonder of medieval construction. Work on the cathedral began in 1088 and carried on for several hundred years, right through the medieval period. The cathedral boasts some fabulous stonework carried out by expert stonemasons, some amazing woodwork crafted by top quality carpenters and joiners, and some stunning stained glass windows. Lincoln Cathedral is currently undergoing significant restoration work, and an “adopt a stone” campaign has been set up for the general public to make donations. Lincoln Cathedral can be accessed from Minster Yard and Eastgate in Lincoln, entry is free and the cathedral is open 365 days a year.
