Lincoln Cathedral Pilgrimage in a Day
Linear Route from Coleby, 9 miles (Google Map Red Line); (or from Navenby, 11 miles; Green Line). Walk the Viking Way along the Dragon’s Back of the Lincoln Ridge in a straight line to the Cathedral. In a short distance visit a high density of churches, and a brand new (impressive) International Bomber Command Centre with its 30-ft high Memorial and Walls of Names, all interspersed with stunning views atop the ridge across the flat landscape below. Then you descend to enter the city of Lincoln through its medieval gate, and then climb the magical ‘Steep Hill’ to arrive at the Cathedral, hopefully in time for Evensong…
Circular Route from the Norman church of Greetwell to Lincoln Cathedral and back (or whichever start point you choose) – 7 miles. Google Map Blue Line. Part of the route follows the Louth to Lincoln Way.
These routes were conceived by the British Pilgrimage Trust. The linear route follows the well sign-posted National Trail the ‘Viking Way’ the whole way.
