Heritage Skills Festival at Lincoln Cathedral 22 /23rd June

En Route to Lincoln I stopped at Bracebridge heath near to the Red Arrows base. During Friday morning they flew round the Cathedral!

The nettles we covered in ladybirds and their larvae, never noticed so many before.


Not the best shot of the Cathedral.

Mike Ashton, Lee Southall and myself were demonstrating. Mike won a prize in the goblet competition at Wizardry in Wood; I wonder why?

He was demonstrating goblet making!

Reminiscent of the log to leg race with Peter and Bernard on the same pole lathe.

The Mistress of the worshipful company manning the desk.

I was in good company with Andrew Neill the Master, Chris Scotts new chairman of the Howe, John Aitken Chairman of the RPT, Joey Richardson( RPT) and Maggie Wright.

The Joiners and Ceilers had a love spoon maker demonstrating, it was all too busy and I did not have the time to talk to him. 


You always meet so many interesting people at public events - Derek Hutchison (bowyers diary) d.hutchison@ntlworld.com was a longbow maker from Harlow in Essex, not too far away from me in East London. Check him out on the web.

Well, an amazing event. The organisation on the ground was impressive and the troops on the ground were great. They should hold this every year perhaps at a different cathedral each year.
