Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I just had to share this as the main photograph, today because it amused me.

I often try to see a narrative in photographs that I see on TE and sometimes that works really well!

On this occasion, we were just approaching Lincoln Castle when this suited man walked forcibly down the path, dragging his suitcase and talking rapidly on his phone, appeared.

Well, it immediately occurred to me that he was moving out! He had had an argument and was no longer going to look after the Magna Carta or be responsible for the upkeep of the castle! I could imagine the portcullis dropping behind him ... never to return!

The castle is as old as the cathedral, nearly 1,000 years. It has been a stronghold, a prison, a debtors prison and always a courthouse.
Courts are still held there and it is a place where one of the four copies of the ancient Magna Carta can be seen.

I will add a second photograph which indicates the close proximity of the castle to the cathedral.

I hope you enjoyed my little story, Bev :-)
