About Lincoln Cathedral
William the Conqueror commissioned Bishop Remigius, the first Bishop of Lincoln, to build the magnificent Cathedral, with work starting in 1072. Then 20 years later, it was consecrated, only two days after Bishop Remigius had died.
Over the years, parts of the Cathedral needed rebuilding because of earthquakes and fires, meaning it took on a more Gothic style of architecture. In 1311, Lincoln Cathedral even became the tallest building in the world, soaring 525ft when the central spire was raised, this lasted until 1549 where a storm caused the spire to collapse.
The magnificent Lincoln Cathedral is a must-see for everyone, especially if you are visiting the area, from the amazing architecture to the statues and carvings. If you’ve seen the film ‘The Da Vinci Code’, then you might even recognise parts of the Cathedral as the final scenes were shot within the Chapter House.
The Story Behind The Lincoln Imp
Possibly one of Lincoln Cathedral’s most popular stories, folk stories tell that the Lincoln Imp was a naughty little creature who caused havoc all around the Midlands. He and his friends arrived at Lincoln Cathedral, where some angels had had quite enough and turned him into stone to make an example of him. You’ll find him high up at the top of one of the pillars inside the Cathedral, but you’ll also spot him on Sophie’s Lincoln Cathedral range!
