Lincoln’s Real Life Gargoyles

I do love a crazy over-the-top building. Lincoln Cathedral is a fascinating, almost insanely ornate structureIMG_9829There is full-on quirkiness here, in the best possible way. Even the hoarding around the building work has been given a trompe l’oeil door and been turned into an exhibition space

Then there’s the Cathedral itself, where the details are endlessIMG_9845

I love that when they chose the door surround (s) they couldn’t pick just one, so they had them allIMG_9836

IMG_9839The stone and woodwork are just beautiful

Then as I looked up, I heard a familiar sound…IMG_9852 - Version 2Can you see it yet?IMG_9852Peregrine Falcon. And Peregrine Falcon JnrIMG_9854

  1. So glad you appreciated this cracking building. It’s 15 mins from us; Lincoln is our local county town. And as you were up at the cathedral you no doubt experienced Steep Hill which won Street of the Year in 2011. The city offers great photo opportunities for sure. Love these shots of yours.
