Legend has it that the Devil once released his young demons to make mischief one day and a two ended up in Lincoln at the Cathedral.
They upset proceedings, knocked over the Dean and broke stained glass windows.
An Angel was despatched and appeared in the Cathedral. The Angel then caught one of the demons and "turned the Wicked Imp to stone". The stone grotesque of the Lincoln Imp can be found on one of the walls of the Cathedral to this day.
The Lincoln Imp has since been adopted as a symbol for the City of Lincoln. I found this beautiful example of the grotesque in the form of a brass door knocker on a house in the town.
I'm privileged to live in a county so full of history and folklore. It makes me so proud to be from this area.

With the recent news that British Steel Scunthorpe was to go into liquidation, I thought it poetic to photograph the works at sunset. Taken from around 5 miles away, I was lucky enough to capture this image of the Southern aspect of British Steel Scunthorpe as the sun set last Thursday evening.
