Lincolnshire amidst history

As some of you know, Lincolnshire is a very old, dynamic place that has undergone several changes and evaluations from the Stone Age, through the Roman age to the modern era; and much evidence of this is reflected throughout the land. Over time Lincoln has become the heart of Lincolnshire. There are several historical structures such as High Bridge, stone bow, Lincoln cathedral, castle, Jew’s house, and so on. Boultham Park, Lincoln Arboretum, Brayford pool, The South commons and Hartsholme Country Park are some picturesque places to visit. All of these elements beautify Lincolnshire and carry a long history.

In Lincoln, there are many places to visit that bring you back to nature and promote relaxation within the body.

Wanna watch wildlife? Visit South Common; a large green grass field of common land that lies on the south-eastern boundary of the city being an awesome and natural habitat of a variety of wildlife including horses and birds.

Lincoln Guildhall and Stonebow is definitely a place to have a walkabout. It reminds me of a medieval meeting place of Lincoln City Council and it indicates a stone archway that leads people to the city from the south.

Walking along Lincoln High street is relaxing. It is a long street populated by shops. One can shop for literally anything on the high street and the sights are really attractive and vibrant.

This house is associated with the thriving Jewish community in Medival Lincoln. Since about 1973 it has been used as a restaurant and before that, it happened to be an antique shop.
