Inside, Lincoln Cathedral is soaring and light-filled with attractively coloured stonework and bright stained glass windows, including two lovely rose windows known as the Dean's Eye and the Bishop's Eye, both dating back to the late Middle Ages. In the Angel Choir (at the farthest, east end of the building) is a famous carving: the Lincoln Imp. Legend has it that two imps were sent by Satan to do evil work on Earth. They came to Lincoln Cathedral, where they smashed chairs and tripped up the Bishop. An angel appeared and ordered them to stop. One escaped but the other was turned to stone. Can you see him, just above the carved head? Many of our churches and cathedrals have 'colourful' carvings and gargoyles. The medieval stonemasons and woodcarvers must have had a sense of humour.
And this, folks, is my 2000th blog post! I never dreamed
when I started that I would go on so long nor enjoy blogging so much.
