It’s good to hear of Steampunk from the uncluttered-with-outfit-and-story-ideas mind of a local person… I love this view of Lincoln Asylum!
Travelled to Lincoln last weekend to see a football match, and went early in order to sneak an hour at Bunty’s Tea Rooms on Steep Hill (purveyors of fine Earl Grey tea and dandelion and burdock cake – yes, that’s cake tasting of DANDELION AND BURDOCK POP!).

Glad to have made your day. It’s always fun to make a new connection and since I started sinking into the Steampunk World, I’ve met so many brilliantly splendid people.
Look up the British Steampunk Community on facebook if you’d like to connect with the people you saw at the Asylum!
