Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Lichfield is an attractive market town and cathedral city in Staffordshire, 15 miles to the North of Birmingham.

The outstanding feature is Lichfield Cathedral, England's only mediaeval cathedral to have three spires. It stands on the site of the building founded in the 7th century by St. Chad, evangelist of Mercia.

The cathedral is separated from the city centre by the attractive Minster Pool, created from an expanse of marshland.

The city itself has a mediaeval street pattern, but with many 18th century houses.

The great Dr. Samuel Johnson was born in Lichfield, and the Dr. Johnson Birthplace Museum, in the Market Place, is a popular local attraction.

Also born in the city was Elias Ashmole, forever remembered at Oxford for the Ashmolean Museum.

Others associated with Lichfield are the essayist Joseph Addison; doctor and naturalist Erasmus Darwin; and Shakespearean actor David Garrick.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Lichfield for groups.
