Lincoln Christmas Market

Apparently it's the biggest market of its kind in Europe. They lay on special trains to Lincoln; coach-trips come from all four corners of the country (... has the UK actually got any corners?). Anyway, in spite (or possibly because) of the fact we're only down the road, we'd never been. So we thought we'd better take a look. Here's our report....
It really was busy. I mean, busier than busy. Try negotiating that lot with a pushchair. And I wonder what all the continental visitors thought of the very British 'one way' system? For pedestrians.
The market covers an area from the west front of the magnificent Cathedral, through the castle grounds and along a road north of the castle walls. Which is where we found this...
Unfortunately, there were places Charlie and I just couldn't go... like most of the stalls at The Lawn's Centre. Thankfully, there was this steam organ to keep us entertained.
Ah, they don't make 'em like that anymore.
Which is probably just as well.
Bah, humbug!
