Charity Abseil - Lincoln Cathedral crossing tower (justgiving)

On July 22nd I will be the first of a troupe of volunteers abseiling 98-ft free-hanging from the vault of the Lincoln Cathedral crossing tower.  Built originally in 1240 by "master mason Alexander" the vaulted crossing will be a site to behold with its beautiful lierne vault.
This is being organised for the Nottingham Hospitals Charity, for whom I am fund-raising.  I have a high sponsorship target to reach.
You can help me raise money for this great cause by donating directly to my fundraising page -
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Nottingham University Hospitals Charity and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.


We have Judgment on the Kedleston setting case.  A good, clear decision about the relevance of visual considerations when assessing setting.  Visual or physical connections between a heritage asset and its setting are not essential and not determinative and Inspectors are required to provide a clear rationale and reasons if they depart from the views of statutory consultees and expert witnesses.
