Afternoon in Lincoln

Yesterday was cold, barely above ten degrees, heavy rain all afternoon. Today was several degrees warmer, it was forecast hazy sun afternoon, started warm and sunny, a pleasant change to yesterday, but no sooner had I set foot in Lincoln very heavy rain, and heavy rain on and off all afternoon.

Not far away Scampton, wettest place in the country 30.2 mm of rain, ie over an inch of rain.

Roast Sunday lunch, roast leg of pork with all the trimming, at Butcher and Beast in Heighington.  Excellent, good size portions, my only criticism, the potatoes cold and the restaurant somewhat grim, and with an outside door open, cold.

Then into Lincoln

A noticeable police present in the High Street.

A quick look in Waterstone’s, a mistake, as heavy rain, it eased off and I made Madame Waffle.

As always, excellent cappuccino in Madame Waffle.

I noticed the third edition of The North and North Wales Independent Coffee Guide on sale. I picked up two copies.

Rain eased off. I made it to Makushi.

Excellent cappuccino in Makushi.

Then made it to Lincoln Castle, before it poured.  En route, more miniature Knights found

The lawn a quagmire, from what I could see of a Food and Drink Festival,  junk food, little evidence of quality, for which an entrance fee of ten pounds.

A completely over the top security presence. And why were private security directing traffic in Castle Hill?

Inside, then outside, armed police.
