Beautiful, sacred Episcopal church on the corner of Tailgate near Lincoln cathedral and opposite castle, opened in 1645 but feels older. Simply stunning with such such a sacred and peaceful feeling. Please take a look inside the Mary Magdalene Church so divine

Called in to this lovely old church during Steampunk weekend in Lincoln, they were serving refreshments. Huge appeal going to raise money to refurbish the inside of the church. Very friendly people
