Finding myself on my own after MSCM 398’s program on Siren FM, I took the opportunity to step into the glorious sunshine on this Saturday afternoon, and take a walk up Lincoln’s High Street and the Steep Hill. This turned out to be a serendipitous stroll, with something magical revealed around every bend in the cobblestone lane.
My route took me from the campus of the University of Lincoln past Brayford Pool, along the canal, into the city’s lively shopping district, then up, up, up the hill to the Norman castle and cathedral. Over a span of more than three hours, I explored Lincoln’s history at The Collection museum, ate a fabulous chicken and ham pie at Widow Cullens Well, bought gifts for the family, and thoroughly enjoyed this most friendly and walkable city.
I also had the pleasure to hear performances by several talented street musicians. This one was well worth five pounds.
