Lichfield’s Hidden Heritage – History of Sandfields Pumping Station – free talk tomorrow!


Sandfields Pumping Station – a great historic building with immense history and social significance – not just to Lichfield, but to the Black Country. Lichfield Discovered and local historian Dave Moore are fighting to save this valuable asset for the community.

Sandfields Pumping Station champion and public historian extraordinaire Dave Moore has been in touch with a tipoff of yet another free Lichfield Discovered talk tomorrow morning (Tuesday, 24th February 2015) at Curborough Community Centere, Lichfield, from 10am until 12 noon.

The talk is entitled ‘Lichfield’s Hidden Heritage – History of Sandfields Pumping Station’, and is sure to be fascinating. Dave Moore, Historian – Photographer – Filmmaker will be talking about Lichfield’s hidden heritage, Sandfields Pumping Station, its history and how it shaped the town and supported the industrial revolution in the Black Country.

The location of the event is Curborough Community Centre, Reynolds Close, Lichfield  WS13 7NY.

Dave is, of course, one of the leading lights of Lichfield Discovered, along with Kate ‘Cardigan’ Gomez from Lichfield Lore.

It’s great to see people like Dave encourage a better attitude to our historic buildings, rather than that which we seem to have here in Walsall, where we regard heritage architecture as merely ‘fuel’.

Please do attend if you’re able, it’s sure to be enlightening, educational and entertaining.
