Lichfield From Above

Time seems to have run away from me last week, but - finally - here are some pictures of our Bank Holiday Monday jaunt up the spire of St Mary's, and the views of Lichfield from above - and very impressive they were too. I'll also be posting something shortly about our afternoon walk in search of Dr Floyer's cold baths, at Abnalls, near Lichfield, so don't go away!

Thanks for the photos! Lichfield is much more modern-looking than I'd imagined. I'd figured there would be more of a mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture, and less open space and 20th-century architecture. It's nice how the more modern buildings are red and blend in with the older ones.

Hi Eliza, I think it's its proximity to a large city (Birmingham) that has contributed to the modernity; I'm not a great fan of the 1960s shopping centre for instance, but many people use Lichfield as a commuting base for Birmingham, and that has led to quite a bit of development over the years.
