Set on top of a hill, with the fens to the east and south, Lincoln's old city is quite delightful. As well as the impressive cathedral there is an adjacent castle (both of which were built by the Normans) within which is a former gaol, while on the side of the hill are substantial Roman remains. Lincoln (Lindum) is at the northern end of the Fosse Way.

The very large 18th century watermill at Houghton sits astride the River Great Ouse, and lies between Huntingdon and St Ives. The mill is open to visitors, who can buy flour that has been milled there. It also houses an art gallery on the ground floor. At one point in the mid-19th century there were ten pairs of stones powered by the mill's three waterwheels. It belongs to the National Trust.
