A few weekends ago we drove up to see Emma and Danny in their Lincolnshire Home. On the way there we stopped in at Jimmy’s Farm which was having a market. We spent a fair bit of time in Leadenham and nearby villages soaking up the culture and beauty. We visited a few Pubs and also went into Lincoln. Lincoln is a cool city, at least the Old part is. There is a large hill in the centre of town crowned by the Huge Lincoln Cathedral and also some old Castle bits. The roads are steep and narrow and have some great shops, including a few good bookshops. We looked inside the massive cathedral and also visited the best preserved Roman arch in The UK (Newport arch).

It was very cold and windy but still a great day.



Rare breed sheep at Jimmy’s Farm


Sunny day in the Beer garden


A road sign that has been vandalised repeatedly


A pleasant walk to the next pub


Girls always want to go into phone booths


Our walk ahead of us, about 7 kms back to home


Another good looking sheep with impressive horns


Lincoln Cathedral in the background


The insides of the cathedral



The roman arch, not hugely exciting but impressive because of its age.
