Notes:

At Lincoln [Cathdral,] Lancet-Pointed work is again preponderant, but Decorated work is very conspicuous and singularly fine, Norman features still remain, and Perpendicular art completes the majestic whole.

[...]

Fortunately, there is a very good inn just beyond the cathedral precincts, within the precincts of the old roman station. As we leave its door we turn a corner, where a curious half-timbered house overhangs the street, and see to the westward the Roman gate and the Norman castle, and to the eastward the Exchequer Gate, a three-storied structure of the Decorated period. This admits us into a small paved square—the Minster-yard—surrounded on three sides by low ecclesiastical dwellings. (pp 169, 169)
