1000 Years of Traditional Crafts & European Stone Festival Lincoln

Yesterday we visited the city of Lincoln as the castle was hosting “1000 Years of Traditional Crafts” within its grounds. There was everything from wood turning, lobsterpot making, blacksmithing, stone masonry , stain glass to name but a few.

Some of the stall holders were dressed in traditional costumes while the demonstrated their crafts.

At the same time up at the Cathedral grounds they were hosting the “European Stone Festival” so we had a wander round that too and marvelled at the skill and creations of the stone masons. There them was food and farming:
