Discover Lincolnshire

Entry to many Lincolnshire’s attractions and activities was free during Discover Lincolnshire Weekend on 12th and 13th of March.
We decided to visit the area on Sunday. We had a nice time and nice early spring weather.

We travelled to Lincoln first.
There is the huge and beautiful Lincoln Cathedral dating back to 11th century. It is a must see building inside and out.

Lincoln Castle is smaller as the cathedral but with a rich cultural heritage.  This castle is a home of the 1215 Magna Charta.

We had a nice walk in the city centre. It was a good exercise too, because historical buildings are on a really high hill.

Lincoln’s open top sightseeing bus and Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum’s vintage bus operated free during the weekend but we used rather our car to press as many visits as possible to our day.

Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum was our last stop in Lincoln. It is a small museum, but they have beautifully refurbished buses and vintage cars.

After learning some news about road transport we visited Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre to acquire some knowledge about airplanes.

We drove half hour to see Cogglesford Watermill milling and had a short nice walk on the countryside.

Our last stop was by a beautiful and still working Heckington Windmill. We were allowed to visit all four floors.
