Lincoln Catherdral of St. Mary
The stunning Lincoln Cathedral of St. Mary is a profound place of worship which stood as the tallest building in the world for 238 years. Still the third largest cathedral in the UK in terms of floor space, the structure is widely regarded as one of the most treasured examples of Gothic architecture in the British Isles. Despite its large size both the interior and exterior are filled top-to-bottom with tiny and intricate details, including captivating rose windows and wooden trusses. The cathedral is the setting for many mystical myths and legends, including the story of the Lincoln imp, a creature turned to stone by an angel as a consequence for attempting to cause havoc within the building. His mischievous image can be seen throughout the site.
