Old signs

Walking around Lincoln it is hard to miss the cobbled, nostalgic Steep Street. The street certainly lives up to its name, being a 1 in 7 gradient, which meant a bit of huffing and puffing as we slowly made our way up. At least there were plenty of shop windows to stragetically stop in front of and peer into.

Steep Street 1

Steep Street is full of independent shops, tea rooms and pubs as well as historic buildings with the top of the hill leading to the entrance of the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral.

Steep Street 5

Half way up the hill was this lovely little Antiques Centre which caught my attention with all these vintage signs outside the shop.

Steep Street 2

I couldn’t walk past with out capturing this typical railway sign from Midlands Railway (1899).
