A south-east view in ink of the new church of St Paul in Lincoln. The original church on this site was built by the Roman governor of Lincoln, Blecca, who had been baptised by St Paulinus. This first church fell down in 1302 and was rebuilt out of the coffers of its parishioners. This second church decayed and was itself rebuilt around 1786. The building in this image is thus the third church on the site, and stands to this day.
