Walk off that turkey with Lichfield Discovered this Sunday!


The lock flight down Pipe Hill towards Lichfield was impressive when functional, as featured in Annette Rubery’s fantastic book, ‘Lichfield, Then & Now’.

Feeling a bit porky after the Christmas excess? Are you up for an interesting an refreshing walk through Lichfield’s canal history this Sunday? Kate Cardigan from the wonderful Lichfield Lore is venturing out for a history walk with her informal and fun social history group, Lichfield Discovered.

On Sunday morning (27th December 2015) at 11:00am, the group will be meeting outside Sandfields Pumping Station in Lichfield for an informal and free canal history walk, followed by a drink and chat at the Duke of Wellington pub.

Kate had this to say about it:

Meet at Sandfields Pumping Station at 11am on Sunday, 27th December 2015 for a social post Christmas walk along the Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust heritage tow path trail between locks 18 and 19 to the disused Fosseway railway crossing and signal box (built 1875), before heading back down Fosseway Lane and finishing up at the remaining canal bridge on the Birmingham Road.

Then, next door to the Duke of Wellington for drinks by the fire (do they have a fire? I hope so).

Approx 3 miles

There’s no charge to attend and everyone is welcome!

As ever, apart from at the pub, the best places to find Lichfield Discovered are on Facebook and on Twitter (@lichdiscovered).

Lichfield Discovered is a collection of dedicated but offbeat local history enthusiasts who really know how to make their subject engaging and entertaining. And meetings are absolutely free to attend. What’s not to love?

Please do pop along, it’ll be great fun!
