Up in the Lincoln Cathedral's central tower, the veteran Victorian bell Great Tom still swings its ponderous 2m, 270kg bulk to sound the hours. Just beyond the tower, the elaborate choir screen is studded with characters, including a stonemason sticking out his tongue just to the left of the door. St Hugh's Choir itself is topped by some quirky vaulting dubbed the 'crazy vault' for its angles, while the superbly carved and canopied stalls below are a classic example of medieval craftsmanship.
