Walk the ditch with Lichfield Discovered this Sunday


Lichfield: it’s full of historical stories and hidden surprises. Why not explore them for free with Lichfield Discovered?

I see that there Kate Cardigan from the wonderful Lichfield Lore is organising a great Sunday afternoon historical walk along the line of the old town boundary ditch, with her informal and fun Lichfield local history group, Lichfield Discovered.

The walk takes place this Sunday, 24th April 201 at 2pm, and it’s totally free!

Kate had this to say about the talk:

Hi Bob

We’re having a walk around the medieval boundary of Lichfield. Despite a few inconveniently placed walls you can pretty much follow the route of the ditch which once surrounded the town (as it was back then). We’ll find the sites of some of the bars or gates, take a look at the remains of the Cathedral Close defences, visit a couple of hospitals and mull over the mystery of Lichfield Castle.

We meet 2pm at the George and Dragon car park on Gaia Lane (and weather permitting maybe pop back there after for a drink in the beer garden).

There is no charge. Walk will take around 2 hours (pub not included!).

Many thanks as ever, Kate

Many thanks for this

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!
