Trip to Lincoln -EV friendly Cathedral City

Went on Monday morning to drive my son to a business meeting in Lincoln and it was a 160 mile trip. We got there ok via the A1,M62,M180,A15 (different route to Satnav and shorter!) and then off to the supercharger at Grantham! WOW 16 stations very good! But lots of space for a roof especially for sun and rain protection and also for SOLAR.

I was very impressed with Lincoln Central Car Park right by the bus station/ Transport Hub having 12 Fast Chargers at no cost! Car Parking fees of £1.60 but on Ground Floor of Multi Storry car park and good and wide access.5 Stars for Lincoln City in making 12 sockets at 7Kw available for EVs. Polar instant app will work with the chargers.App very flakey and takes ages to connect to chargers via server.

BP CHARGEMASTER Webchat 0 points for not Knowing that 12 sockets on 6 Units are even present in Lincoln Central Car Park and 0 Stars for not knowing where identifiers for stations are! Took me ages to identify identity tags of chargers! Labels are hidden at an angle away from view under the charge unit and charge unit is only 1 meter off the ground so you have to get down on your Knees to identify numbers. So after 20 minutes finally got green light and charging!!!😀 You have to be patient in this game!

Lincoln nice cathedral City like DURHAM and will on next visit in four weeks look at Magna Carter and Forest Carter in Lincoln Castle as another business meeting looms! Next time will spent more time in City and even will frequent one of the numerous cafes. Easier now that I know how it works and where the facilities are!
