Fish & Chips in Lincoln, England: Part II
I left you at the Central Market in Lincoln sitting in the sun on a public bench surrounded by flowers and eating delicious fish & chips from The Sign of the Fish. A few corrections and additions: On the way down Steep Hill from the Lincoln Cathedral, I had you stop at a Lincoln bakery for a crusty fruit tart and combicorn bread. The bakery name is Curtis of Lincoln (not Clarke's)--sorry. After F&C, wander around the Central Market and stop at Chatterton & Sons Butcher & Baker for some Double Glouster or cheddar extra old cheese for a snack later to go with the combicorn bread. At the nearby CO-OP supermarket, in the wine section, pick up a bottle of Harvey's Medium Sherry (pale would be better but they never have it). A guilty pleasure, but remember how much you saved on lunch and pudding (dessert). Later, when you most need it, you will pour yourself a double sherry with bread and cheese and thank me. Your shoulder bag or backpack is heavy now, but just outside the CO-OP door is the city bus station. You are tired and dread the climb back up Steep Hill, but for 60p Bus 6/7 will take you up Steep Hill to the Cathedral, or Bus 5 will take you up the hill a few blocks from the cathedral. It takes about 2 minutes. Tell the driver you want to get off at the stop nearest the Cathedral. (Driver attention span may vary, so when the bus stops climbing and levels off, push the red button and get off. You will have no trouble seeing Lincoln Cathedral. It's very large. When you get back to Castle Square (between the Cathedral and the Castle) stop at the ice cream store 1/2 block north. Its painted pink, you cant miss it. They make their own ice cream and have flavours such as lemon meringue. My favorite is Brandy & Orange. Enjoy!
