A visit to Lincoln Cathedral – Saturday 2nd September 2023
The visit has been jointly organised by Cambridgeshire Association for Local History (CALH), Cambrideshire Historic Churches Trust (CHCT) and Huntingdonshire Local History Society (HLHS)
We are delighted to be able to help organise a visit by coach to Lincoln Cathedral, led by Revd. Dr Lynne Broughton. The Cathedral is the subject of Lynne’s recent book ‘Lincoln Cathedral: Insights and Explanations’, which will be on sale in the Cathedral shop at a special discount price.
Lincoln Cathedral is one of the greatest buildings of medieval Europe, visible for miles around, spread along its hill top site.
This is a particular good time to visit. The West Front, with its friexe of Romanesque sculptured panels, is fully visible after more than thirty years covered with scaffolding and hoardings. The wonderful interior boasts among other beauties a broad, light-filled nave and the famous Angel Choir with multiple sculptured figures. In the precinct are the medieval and later library and the vaulted polygonal Chapter House. A new visitor centre contains an interpretation display in which the Romanesque panels can be see at close quarters.
