Sermon preached on the 70 Anniversary of 617 Sqn Lincoln Cathedral by the Venerable Ray Pentland, Chaplain-in-Chief of the Royal Air Force and Prebendary of St Botolph in Lincoln Cathedral. Police cadets taking an exam were faced with this question; You are on foot patrol. Proceeding down the hill, you hear the screeching brakes of a petrol tanker, you witness it lose control crash into a house, trapping the driver and emptying its tank all over the road. You are ...Read more →
One of my favourite things about working on the visitor services team is talking to so many different people from all over the world, and what better talking point then our beautiful Cathedral. Our new visitor’s blog is here to share some of our experiences and some of the fascinating stories our visitors tell us.

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist at Pentecost, 19th May, 2013 Have you ever tried to talk a pigeon into leaving a library? I once spent almost an hour alone in a library – another Wren Library this time up in the roof spaces at St Paul’s Cathedral – trying to persuade a rogue pigeon to leave. In the end I gave up, left the door open and he ...Read more →

I had to leave in the very early hours of Monday morning so that I could get down to Nantes in time to get unloaded and across to Tours ...Read more →

It was within walking distance to the supermarket and a local go karting track, which I have to say, was good fun! On Monday morning I reported in for my strict 06.30 delivery backed on the bay waiting to unload. They didn’t start until 07.00, but it didn’t ...Read more →
Sometimes, when I am down-hill and look back up at the astonishing building I work to maintain, I am struck by how it may have appeared to previous generations. Was it the stamp of Norman power, the caring expression of St Hugh’s life or a place where, in the eighteenth century perhaps, privileged people could live in comfort? Probably all three, if I’m honest, but what of today’s Cathedral? Does it consume or contribute?
through music…art…poetry…craft…reading…writing… You name it, and we probably have the resources for it! So if you ever thought prayer was just asking for things, or being bored, or just not for you – why not book an hour to come and explore the possibilities? We are aiming to fill an entire week, day and night, with prayer in the Ringers’ Chapel.
