Lincoln Cathedral south west entrance restored

This story is over

The south west entrance to Lincoln Cathedral has been restored.

The make-over revealed itself at the weekend, when workmen took down the scaffolding around the entrance.

The window above the entrance has been restored recently, and Cathedral masons removed the threshold to improve access through the door.

Carpenters also lengthened the door to match the new entry height.

The north west entrance will be restored soon as well.

Lincoln Cathedral Chief Executive Phil Hamlyn Williams said: “Well done to our wonderful team!

“I love the weight of the doors, the delicate carving around the Norman arches and the way they beckon the visitor to come in.

“I can’t wait for the north west entrance to receive the same treatment.”
