Filming at Lincoln Cathedral

Hundreds of people with audience tickets queued to get in the cathedral for the secret filming part on Friday, October 26. The Lincolnite went for a sneak peak of what was happening inside.

The choir and the audience sang a hymn – “Dear Ford & Father of mankind” – as a tribute to the original mass producer of vehicles, which is set to close the last episode, and possibly the last episode ever.

Previous Lincoln visit

Clarkson and May stopped in Lincoln in 2011 while filming an episode for series 17 of Top Gear.

In the episode, the pair tried to cross the country in the new Nissan Leaf and Peugeot iOn, two fully electric cars, but Clarkson ran out of battery and had to recharge at the University of Lincoln to a delighted crowd.
