People will get the chance to take a stroll through Lichfield’s parks as part of the National Forest Walking Festival. The guided walks in Beacon Park, Minster Pool and Stowe Pool will take place on May 18, 22 and 25, from 10am to 11.30am. Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet member for parks at Lichfield District Council, said: “Lichfield Historic Parks offer great walks as they’re each so different, from Beacon Park’s formal gardens and woodland and Minster Walk’s views across to the cathedral, to all the wildfowl on Stowe Pool. “Going on one of these walks is a great way to get exercise, get closer to nature and meet local volunteers.” The walks will set off from Greenhough Road car park on the edge of Beacon Park.
