Lincoln Cathedral was the next location on our whistle-stop tour of Lincoln. I don’t reckon I need to say much about it apart from the fact that it’s right up there with York Minster.
This visit, along with another chance to see the peregrines in action would have made for a wonderful day out on its own but we also managed to squeeze in a visit to the Ellis Mill – a working windmill dating from 1798. It’s the only remaining one of nine mills that ranged side by side along the appropriately named Mill Road taking advantage of what seems to be the only hill in the area to make the most of the available wind.
Of course I took the opportunity to buy some of their wholemeal flour. I’ve not yet had the chance to test it out but am looking forward to trying a loaf made with Lincolnshire wheat milled in the traditional way.
