Magna Carta Coffee Shop, Lincoln

Only four original copies of Magna Carta remain from when it was sealed by King John on 15th June 1215. King John is said to have been forced into its sealing by rebellious barons with the aim of limiting the power of the monarchy and upholding the rights of the individual. Copies of the charter were spread to religious houses in England - Hugh of Wells, the then Bishop of Lincoln, was present at the sealing and made sure a copy was brought back to Lincoln Cathedral. Today it is on loan to Lincoln Castle and on display there.This Coffee shop carrys it's name.
