Walk the lost Beacon Place with Lichfield Discovered tonight!

42919869

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 has organised a great Monday Evening historical walk exploring the lost estate of Beacon Place, with her informal and fun Lichfield local history group, Lichfield Discovered.

The walk takes place tonight, Monday, 9th May at 7pm, and it’s totally free!

Kate had this to say about the talk:

Hi Bob

Would you let people know about our next walk please?

It’s on Monday 9th May at 7pm and we’re going to be exploring the lost estate of Beacon Place. It’s a chance for people to find out more about the history of Lichfield’s much loved Beacon Park before it became our park!

Local historian John Gallagher has been researching the subject and will be sharing stories of the people once associated with the now demolished Georgian mansion, showing us photographs of how it once was and we’ll be on the lookout for any remaining traces.

We’re meeting at 7pm at the George and Dragon car park. Everyone welcome and there is no charge.

Many thanks for you continuing support of Lichfield Discovered Bob, we really do appreciate it!

Cheers, Kate

Please do attend, it’ll be great fun!

    John puts a lot of hard graft into his talks.. it is nice to get something for free but a goodwill gesture to John would be a fitting thank you I feel!!! Without people like John all attendees would have trouble understanding the amazing history of Lichfield and some of its lost treasures – #justsaying

    I remember Beacon Park before they added a children’s playground. We used to often go on adjoining walks around pipe green.
