Lincoln Area Code: 01522
Lincoln is a cathedral city in the heart of Lincolnshire in the East Midlands. The city is a popular tourist destination thanks to its rich and varied architecture, including the Gothic Lincoln Cathedral. The history of the town dates back to the Iron Age settlement of Lindon. The city also has Roman and Viking links as the town was of strategic importance thanks to its network of waterways.
Perhaps the most interesting part of Lincoln is its topographical situation which splits the city in two. Lincoln is located on the Lincoln cliff, which gives the city its unique divide between “Uphill” and “Downhill”. The River Witham flows through the middle of the gap. The “Uphill” portion is located 283 ft above sea level while the “Downhill” portion is 66 ft above sea level. The two parts of the town are connected by a narrow pedestrian passageway known as the Steep Hill. Historically, the divide also marked the class distinction in the area, with richer residents living “Uphill” and poorer residents “Downhill”.
