Beyond these quiet streets – why not come and hear some great tales of Cathedral Close tonight? Image by Patrick Comberford.

Kate Cardigan Gomez, irrepressible wonder behind Lichfield Lore has organised a walk and tour around Cathedral Close in Lichfield tonight (Monday, 12th May 2014) with her other project, Lichfield Discovered – it starts at 7:00pm outside Lichfield Heritage Centre.

The walk is to be led by the charming, intelligent and witty Patrick Comberford, of whose work I’m a huge fan. Patrick will will be telling some fascinating stories of Cathedral Close, which are sure to be fascinating and hugely entertaining.

Kate had this to say about the walk:

Monday (12th May) we have a Lichfield Discovered tour of the Cathedral Close, led by Patrick Comerford who is going to be telling us about the history of some of the buildings and sharing the stories of the people who lived in them.

We’re meeting at 7pm outside the Heritage Centre in the Market Square. Everyone is welcome.

These events are increasing in popularity, and I can see why; this is a collection of dedicated but offbeat local history enthusiasts who really know how to make their subject engaging and entertaining. And it’s absolutely free to attend. What’s not to love?

Please do attend, it’ll be great fun!


A man of warmth, intelligence and great wit – don’t miss your change to hear him tell the story of Cathedral Close. Image from Patrick’s Facebook page.
