Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Minster Yard, Lincoln - Lincoln

One of England's finest cathedrals and an iconic Lincolnshire landmark, established in 1072. Ongoing programmes of repair are addressing the progressive decay of historic fabric. However, the overall condition of high level masonry and some roofs remain a particular concern. Historic England has funded repairs to the southwest and northwest turrets. The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded grant funding towards a £16 million project called 'Lincoln Cathedral Connected'. The project will include new visitor facilities, repairs to the west front and conservation of the famous Romanesque Frieze.
