This cool older guy was at one with his saxophone and lost in his music in Lincoln’s busy high street. On a sunny day, there were plenty of people about and, as someone who has been occasionally visiting Lincoln over the years, I was pleasantly surprised to see how much the city has come on and is more in step with the times.
Lincoln has always been dominated by its huge spectacular cathedral. The ascent up the cobbled and appropriately-named Steep Hill to reach the cathedral on foot is part of the visit. It can be a challenging walk!
It’s a lovely place to visit, especially now it attracts a lot of tourists. When I first went there in the late 60s, it was a bit of a dull and proper city, compared with swinging London, where I grew up.
When the university was set up in the city, it breathed new, young life into the place, making it a livelier destination than it ever was when I first went there.
