Tennyson's statue is just outside Lincoln Cathedral refectory and perfect for a picnic as there are benches nearby. Looks lovely in the autumn light.

A fitting memorial to Lincolnshires greatest poet, and a genius in his day. His way with words is thrilling and libersting.

We've been taking evening walks of the bailgate for years, always pass by Alfred, looking at his flowers. A few years ago a flower actually took root in his hand during the summer, I am sure it would have tickled him to know this.

The statue itself I would guess is about 7-8 feet tall and is sitting on a 6 foot concrete block
