Archaeological sights in Lincoln

The Angel Choir is graced by 28 angels carved high up the walls of the Lincoln Cathedral. It was built as a shrine to St Hugh but modern pilgrims are mostly preoccupied with hunting for the famous Lincoln Imp, a lovably roguish little horned character that is now the city's emblem. Various fun legends surround the imp, but we like the one that the mischievous creature was caught chatting up one of the carved angels and was promptly turned to stone.
