Off to Lincoln this afternoon to see the castle and cathedral. The castle was good, although perhaps not the quite worth the admission fee as basically you have access to a nice garden, the old castle wall and the old prison. Whilst the gardens are simple but nice and the view from the castle wall is great, the main things to see here are originals of the the Magna Carta and Rules of the Forest, both dating back to 1215 and one of only 4 originals left.
Next onto the cathedrals, which we have seen some pretty impressive ones in France and Germany I found Lincoln to be just as impressive if not more so. From the entrance you expect it to be small but when you get inside it is huge! You have to hand it to the designers and workers how build these churches as the layout and ceilings are fantastic. Lincoln Cathedral is one of those places I have always wanted to see because of it's relationship with the crews of Bomber Command. So to see the various chapels to the forces was humbling, especially given most had Australian flags hanging around them. Whilst I expected to see it in the airmens chapel it was surprising to see it in the Navy chapel, however when you look at the window above you can see it commemorates both George Bass and Matthew Flinders. Whilst we were there someone was playing the organ which sounded amazing.
