Cathedrals form an important part of the British heritage and landscape. Their immense presence risen up over generations of devotion and belief. Two favourites of mine are Durham and Lincoln both dating from the late ten hundreds. Each dominating their cities from their respective hilltops. History and events are as much a part of their structures as the stone they are built from, Durham’s founders moving from Lindisfarne to escape the raids of the Vikings. Lincoln suffering fire and earthquake. Both will be finding a place on the visit list.
Lincoln Cathedral and it’s golden limestone façade shares it’s hilltop with the Castle, home to a copy of the Magna Carta.
