In answer to questions, yes I think we did spot the imp - is this it?
After our tour of the Cathedral, we ventured down "Steep Hill" - and yes, it is aptly named.
I love the old corner shop at the bottom - it looks very "wartime" to me.
The bottom bit of Lincoln is the new bit and has a very different feel to the top of the hill. It is more modern and has more "chain" shops and restaurants, but it also has a couple of lovely little markets too. We walked along the waterside at the newly restored Brayford Pool . The sun was out by this stage and it got fairly warm.
Where the canal goes under the main shopping street, it reminds me of some of the towns we visited in Normandy France.
Once back at the top of the town, we headed back to our car.
I love Lincoln. It's near enough to us to pop for the day, but we really enjoyed the night out too - something we plan on doing more of now that we find ourselves back to being "a couple" more and more.
