SK9771 : Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln

taken 8 years ago, near to Lincoln, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln
Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln
The view west. Between the towers is Exchequergate. Beyond is Lincoln Castle with the Observatory Tower showing between the pinnacles of the left tower.
Note the kink in the roof of the nave. During building, when it was realized that the roof wasn't going to meet the west front in the correct place it was decided that the frontage should be taken down and re-built, however, the person in charge of money, gold etc lost the funds and so that idea was abandoned and the roof took the turn you see here.
