Lichfield discovered – Exploring the Cruck House – on tonight!


The Cruck House is a remarkable building in a rather surprising location! Image from Kate ‘Cardigan’ Gomez, straightened by Uncle Bob.

Once again, the irrepressible Kate Cardigan from the Lichfield Lore contacts me to tell me that there’s another great Lichfield Discovered event tonight organised by her informal Lichfield local history group.

Tonight at 7:30pm, (Thursday 17th September 2015), they have a wonderful free talk at the Cruck House on Stowe Street, Lichfield. TKate had this to say about the talk:

Thursday 17th September, we’re getting together at 7.30pm to have a look inside the medieval Cruck House on Stowe Street in Lichfield.

Dave Moore will be demonstrating some of the techniques used by the craftspeople who built this timber framed building in the 15th century, and talking about its past and present uses.

No charge although donations are always 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!

    Good to see this again after so many years! My Mother lived in Stowe Street and my Grandad actually discovered the roof of a secret tunnel from the Cathedral going towards St. Chad’s, whilst digging in his back garden.
    The council filled it in with concrete!
