On a scale of 1-10, how wonky would you rank this wonktastic 500-year old tumblin' down cottage? This bendy timber framed home dates from c.1500 and is a small nugget of the 2,000 years of history here in lovely Lincoln, England. Great shot by @garibaldi 1966
This is the appropriately named "Crooked House" just off Steep Hill (love the literal names of places!) In the distance you can see Lincoln Cathedral. Building commenced in 1072AD and continued in several phases throughout the medieval period. Nearby Lincoln Castle is now the only place in the world where an original 1215 Magna Carta and 1217 Charter of the Forest can be seen side by side. If you see Nicholas Cage snooping around let me know.
For our American chums, both the state declarations of rights and the United States Bill of Rights incorporated several guarantees that were descend from rights protected by Magna Carta. Among these are freedom from unlawful searches and seizures, a right to a speedy trial, a right to a jury trial in both a criminal and a civil case, and protection from loss of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. Sadly the right to unlimited cups of Yorkshire tea and a plate of choccie biscuits was left off by mistake.
Have a lovely, peaceful Monday! Great shot by @garibaldi 1966 🇬🇧 Want to be featured? Follow and tag us in the shot! ‘Ta very much! 🇬🇧 ...
