The foundations he laid were the basis of the future prosperity of the bishopric of Lincoln
Honywood Press is named in honour of Michael Honywood (Dean of Lincoln, 1660-1681) whose notable benefactions to the Cathedral included both the building of the Wren Library and much of the unique collection of rare books and manuscripts that it houses.
