Lincoln Academy, in Newcastle, has a mystery it would like help solving. Does anyone know who made the fish-shaped weathervane that sits on top of the bell tower spire? Does anyone know why a fish was chosen? Does anyone know why there is an “X” in an oval in the body of the fish?
A historic picture shows the weathervane in place in 1898, but it unknown when it was made and placed there.
If anyone knows any history about the weathervane, please contact Paula Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 215-5481.
