Today we hopped a bus from Alrewas to Lichfield. Hubby wanted Lidl to purchase an oil suction pump so he can drain the gearbox oil. Wow exciting. Anyway off we went. Lichfield a lovely town with many old buildings and museums but we only had a short time, so plumped to visit the cathedral. Not allowed to take photos inside, but a fantastic ornate building.
There has been a place if worship on the site for over 1300 years. Remains of the old Anglo Saxon cathedral were found during renovation work in 2003. It also has a small display of the Saxon hoard that was found in 2009 by an amateur with his metal detector. Over 5kg of gold and 1.5kg silver was found during the excavation of the site.
The cathedral’s 16th century painted glass windows are currently undergoing restoration.
After our visit we walked to Lidl, got caught in a sleet storm! Then got bus back. Greeted by some little friends who float by in the hope of food.
