The King Edward VII statue

An iconic statue in Lichfield is back on display after restoration work was completed.

The King Edward VII statue in Beacon Park, which dates back to 1908, is back on show after being cleaned as part of Lichfield District Council’s and Lichfield City Council’s multi million pound project to transform Beacon Park, The Garden of Remembrance, and Minster Pool and Walk.

Councillor Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Development Services, said:

“As one of the first things visitors see when entering Beacon Park, it was important to restore the statue of Edward VII. We are all delighted with the results. It looks like a new statue, rather than one that is more than 100 years old.”

    When will Captain Smith reappear from under his wrap? Let’s hope he emerges as impressive as the king.
