0 Lincoln; specifically Steep Hill

 Our main purpose in going to Lincoln was to meet up with some friends of ours who were there visiting family for the week.  Due to the short winter hours and the time we spent enjoying lunch with them, Paul and I were only able to sight-see the Cathedral and Steep Hill. Having a native tour guide does help- even if we'd walked on Steep Hill by accident we wouldn't have known its significance without Sarah!

Walking out of the pub we ate lunch in, Paul happened to notice the street name.  We resisted the urge to knock on doors asking for muffins :)

 This bookshop is on Steep Hill, as you might be able to read on the lower left of the building. 

 Best cat door ever (also on Steep Hill).

 This is part of Steep Hill.  Rated the Best Street in Britain by the Academy of Urbanism (yeah, that's a thing, apparently), Steep Hill also gets my award for most matter-of-fact name for a street.  We walked down Steep Hill, then turned around and walked back up.  It's a doozy, but it's also got a lot of charm and some cute shops!
