The Stonebow, Lincoln, Lincs., England
Photographed in my home town on 12 September 2002.
The Stonebow stands at the top of the High Street, where the Roman gateway to the south of the city once stood. In its present form, the Stonebow was built in the early 1500s and is a great display of Tudor craftsmanship. The bell (at the right on the roof of the building) has been dated to 1371, and is rung only for the traditional occasion of calling Lincoln’s Councillors to their meetings that take place in the chambers above the archway.
