Lincoln cathedral by day and night

A brief but energetic outing this afternoon to see Lincoln Cathedral (the conference had a little cathedral sized gap in it), which involved walking up a very steep hill called, imaginatively, Steep Hill.  It is huge, and beautiful, whichever way one looks - up,

or semi-up;

or straight ahead;

or if one walks up the Steep Hill again for the conference dinner, and sees it all lit up.

A wonderful and quite unexpected bonus were the two William Morris windows, rescued from a Lincoln church that was demolished in 1971 - one presented pre-conservation, and the other in its restored state.
