Lincoln: In addition to 60 knights and a gold post box; there is sculpture, swans, ducks, bridges and barons.

Following the knights trial revealed sights, I had never seen before in Lincoln.

The black and white building is a restaurant. I knocked my first wobbly tooth out there, eating fish fingers and swallowed it.

In 2015, Lincoln had a similar trial of batons. I saw one of the full sized sculptures of that in the Minerva building of the university which now has a bronze knight as part of the knight trial. Many shops; more than I took pictures of, have miniature barons in their windows.
