Object - Tapestry, England and See of Lincoln
A tapestry on the wall above the entrance to the room currently used to display items from the Treasury, on the north wall of the North Choir Aisle.
Location - North Choir Aisle
This seems to be a better lit corridor than its counterpart on the south side, it also tends to a bit busier as it is the natural route between the Nave, St. Hugh's Choir and the Cloister Court (for the library and the cafe).
