New Lichfield maps give visitors a chance to find out more about the city centre

A new city map is hoping to make it easier for visitors to navigate the attractions of Lichfield city centre.

New boards have been installed, with five of them also offering people the chance to find out more about the area’s history and its famous sons and daughters.

They have been provided through a partnership between Lichfield City Council, Lichfield District Council and the Lichfield District Tourism Association.

Councillor Ian Pritchard, Cabinet member responsible for tourism at Lichfield District Council, said: “I am pleased to see the new information panels and maps in place.

“They look very smart and really complement the city centre.

“The map will prove a useful guide to visitors to the city and the information boards offer a glimpse of Lichfield’s rich and varied history, and encourage visitors to see the sights and make the most of their trip.”

The next phase of the project will see similar boards installed at Lichfield City and Lichfield Trent Valley railway stations.

Councillor David Dundas, from Lichfield City Council, said: “This new signage is a good example of how the city and district councils can work together to provide improvements to our city.

“This is the first project to be funded by the city council’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) receipts, and I look forward to many more successful CIL projects in the future.”

    Hope they’ve included the newer highlights of the city too…

    * The Birmingham Road Site/Friarsgate portaloos
    * The charity and coffee shop trail
    * The Tempest Ford Hoardings modern art masterpiece

    They could also go and look at the historic Friary building (as long as they own a retirement apartment there).
