The historical county of Lincolnshire is the second largest in the country, stretching from the banks of the Humber estuary in the north to the limestone uplands around Stamford in the south. And within the county there is a range of contrasting scenic areas from the rolling hills and dry valleys of theWolds to the flat fen and marshland landscapes around the Wash. At the heart of the county is the historic city of Lincoln with the magnificent Cathedral and Castle perched high on the cliff. Descend from the Cathedral Quarter down the aptly named Steep Hill and The Strait with their quirky vintage and retro shops, to arrive in the High Street, home to leading brand retailers. There are further shopping centres in Watergate and at St Marks, while Brayford Waterfront is home to the University of Lincoln and many restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. For those interested in the heritage of the county there is The Collection Museum and Usher Gallery, and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life; but the history of the city is evident in its buildings from the Roman Newport Arch to the medieval Stonebow and the grand Victorian civic institutions. So come and explore Lincolnshire through the pages of this book; enjoy the beautiful photographs that guide you around the city of Lincoln and highlight the wonderful landscapes and picturesque towns and villages of the county. Peter and Janet Roworth live in their adopted county of Lincolnshire. After a long career working in nature conservation and managing nature reserves for the RSPB, National Trust, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, and latterly Natural England, Peter has now retired, and is able to devote more time to his photographic interests, particularly in landscape and agricultural subjects. Peter is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and he is currently working towards his Fellowship. Janet has an interest in history, and enjoys participating in a group of local historians who meet regularly in Lincoln, and working as a research volunteer with the National Trust. The couple
