St Hugh, Lincoln
St Hugh, Lincoln
This Catholic church was erected in 1893 in place of the former chapel of St John, in Silver Street. Bishop Bagshawe laid the foundation on the 17 November 1892. Thirteen months later on Tuesday 19 December 1893 the church was opened by Cardinal Vaughan and dedicated to St Hugh of Lincoln at a cost of 7300 including the benches and high altar. It seats 400 people. The church appears to be very popular with the Polish community.

Normally traffic would be nose to tail at 12:40pm on a Friday afternoon, but as can be seen, road works are in progress. The church is at the junction of Monk's Road, Broadgate and Silver Street.

The Saint Hugh was born in Avalon in 1140. He rebuilt the Cathedral of Lincoln, which was earthquake damaged, all but the west front. On his death he was buried close to the high altar. King John helped to carry the coffin up "The Steep" to the cathedral and he, with the King of Scotland, several archbishops, 14 bishops and 100 abbots, attended the funeral.
