A guided tour in Lichfield

People are being invited to find out more about Lichfield’s past during Local and Community History Month.

The initiative aims to connect residents with the heritage of the areas they live and work in.

As well as attractions such as Lichfield Cathedral, Erasmus Darwin House and the Samuel Johnson Birthplace, tours also take place on various aspects of the city’s past.

Cllr Iain Eadie, deputy leader of Lichfield District Council, said:

“Lichfield is a district that has a history that is completely fascinating, so there is plenty for everyone to explore and find out more about the area, its famous residents and beautiful locations.

“With Local and Community History Month going ahead in May, it’s the perfect time to visit some of the fantastic attractions that are located in the area and discover more about Lichfield’s past.

“But while you are looking at the history of the area, make sure that you take a look at everything Lichfield District has to offer as there is always plenty going on, to visit and find out more about.”

Cllr Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council
