A series of plaques celebrating the role of women in Lichfield’s history have gone up around the city.

One of the plaques at Speakers’ Corner

They are the work of the Wayward Women’s History Group who were inspired by the Rosie’s Plaques organisation.

The six plaques have gone up at Dam Street, Speakers’ Corner, Stowe Pool, St John Street, the Guildhall and in the shopping precinct.

A spokesperson said:

“A leaflet giving the full stories will be available next week from Lichfield Library, Faro Lounge, the George Hotel, the Daily Grind and the Nest.”

  1. Now – just to make this absolutely clear, I’m in no way denigrating the spirit of this, and those involved should be applauded but, the plaques themselves look awful. They look like a primary school child has “had a go” at making them. Isn’t it possible to raise funds to get some made that look professional??

  2. Stewart – I’m on no way suggesting you have completely missed the point of this and should probably take a look at the campaign and its origins, but….you have completely missed the point of this and should probably take a look at the campaign and its origins and maybe then you will have a better understanding of what this excellent initiative is all about

  3. The Scribbler – maybe my humour was a little too nuanced for you? Far be it from me to suggest you’ve completely missed the point of my post but…….

    In any case – well done.
