Is this true?

Recommended Posts

I was sat on the bog this morning reading about Nottingham in Bradshaw's railway guide. Apparently, from Mapperley Plains, according to Bradshaw, it is possible to see Lincoln Cathedral and Belvoir Castle. Is that right?

Belvoir Castle you certainly can. Not sure about Lincoln Cathedral. You would need powerful binoculars as it’s about 40 miles away to the northeast. Having said that you can see both Lincoln Cathedral and Southwell Minster from High Cross hill above Bleasby. Apparently it’s the only place in the UK where you can see two Anglican Cathedrals. I can vouch for it as it was a very clear day yesterday and I stopped to look for the first time in many years.

When my dad worked at Mapperley Hospital, he could see Lincoln Cathedral from his office on a clear day.

Well that answers the question. Perhaps the top of Woodborough Hill would be the best viewing point or maybe Dorket Head.
