Where the Waterside Shopping Centre (built 1987-91) now stands was originally marshy ground, which the Romans reclaimed, building piers and creating inlets. Here Stephen Broadbent’s Empowerment sculpture spans the River Witham from City Square. Its theme is God empowering mankind in the form of Adam. Privately funded, the sculpture reflects the city’s engineering heritage.*

    What a beautiful installation. I haven’t been to Lincoln yet but the cathedral has long been on my to-visit list.

      If you intend to stay in Lincoln I would recommend the old part of the town near the cathedral, rather than the lower town.

      Lincoln is well worth a visit, we still have a few outstanding places to see ;-)

    I like this sculpture and the challenge of getting the hands to meet for the photo.
