Lincoln Cathedral: Choir Screen was written in February 2017 – one of several posts about this lovely cathedral which we visited in 2016 on a road journey up the east coast of England culminating in Scotland.
The †13C limestone choir screen is a marvellous example of decorated Gothic architecture with pinnacles and arches with tiny carved animal heads.
The walls of the screen are covered with carvings of leaves and flowers. Traces of red and blue paint can still be seen on them.
Carved head of a tongue-puller journeyman in his leather cap.
I only wish I lived closer as I could spend many an hour focussing on the details of this screen.
