National Police Memorial Day


NPMD 2021

This year, due to Covid restrictions, attendance is by invitation only. We will be streaming the live service and a short video will be released at 1600 on 26th September where you will be able to see parts of the live service as well as some pictures of Lincoln Cathedral.

Lincoln Cathedral is the third largest English Cathedral with only Liverpool and St Paul's being larger. It is one of the high points of Gothic architecture. Built originally in 1073 an earthquake in 1185 left it devastated and under Hugh of Avalon rebuilding started and by 1280 to transform it into the great building we see today. In the early 14th century the central tower was finished, and the cloisters added, and by the end of that century the twin west towers as well. The central tower, which rises to 271 feet, was topped with a huge spire of wood encased with lead. That tower stretched upwards to 525 feet, making Lincoln Cathedral the tallest building in Europe, and probably in the world. Sadly, the central spires fell in 1548, and similar spires on the west towers were removed in 1807.
