Photographer's Note

Good Morning Friends,

Who could believe this beautiful building, called Leigh-Pemberton House, has been part of the city of Lincoln for centuries.

Leigh-Pemberton House is located on Castle Square, Bailgate, between Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle. It became a Grade II* listed building on 8 October 1953.

It is a half-timbered Tudor house, originally built for a merchant in 1543. It became a bank from 1899 until 1979, when it was eventually given to the city of Lincoln by the Chairman of the National Westminster Bank, Sir Robin Leigh-Pemberton, (later governor of the Bank of England).

It underwent extensive restoration in 1929 and 1970. The second and third floors have had many uses over the years but have recently been restored for self catering accommodation. Edited from Wikipedia.

So, it would seem that, if you desire, you can stay in this magnificent building and sample England's history!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)
