Lincoln Cathedral (part 1)
Looking up at the cathedral towers, the only thing higher is the sky.
(It's SkyWatch Friday, so stop by here to see other SkyWatch blogs.)
Just about anywhere you go in Lincoln, the cathedral dominates the landscape. In fact, it can be seen from nearly 30 miles away. Construction on it began in 1072, and after partially surviving a fire and an earthquake within its first hundred or so years, rebuildings, renovations, and additions over the centuries brought us its current imposing image. We spent the entire afternoon in the cathedral, and could have spent another full day without seeing everything. This post will look at the exterior.
