Mini History Blog St Hugh' Choir and the Nave at Lincoln Cathedral


My photograph, taken a couple of years ago, shows St Hugh's Choir and the Nave at Lincoln Cathedral.

I have been to the cathedral a number of times since and the whole building still amazes me. The nave has a great feeling of light and space and this is accentuated by the Victorian stained glass in the windows that lie either side.  It really doe's take your breath away to see it.

St Hugh's Choir is an early example of the English Gothic style.

Of the Cathedral John Ruskin wrote

'I have always held and proposed against all comers to maintain that the Cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles’
