Lichfield Cathedral

Looking East down the Nave of the Lichfield Cathedral, three Icons can be seen. To left of the Nave Archangel Gabriel is depicted and to the right the Virgin Mary. The centre Icon shows Jesus being crucified on the cross. This Icon viewed from the West shows the resurrection of Jesus.

    stunning shots, CP! what impressive architecture that you have shown off beautifully.

    Was Lichfield such an important town that it required this towering, very elegant cathedral? Who would have paid for the original building?

      I can’t answer any of those questions until me book on the Cathedral arrives (hopefully tomorrow).

      This Cathedral does not promote itself. It does not have a guidebook to provide additional information and the website has limited information.

  3. Beautiful photos – from memory my old camera struggled with the light at Lichfield Cathedral. I think I have a guide book somewhere but I think it was quite basic. Pevsner may have information but sadly I don’t have a Pevsner for Staffordshire.

      Lichfield is very dark inside. I think my camera worked well under the circumstances, especially as it was a rainy day making even outside dark.

      My book about the Cathedral arrived today. I sourced it through Ebay, it was sold by Lichfield Cathedral. They probably should add a link to their website to help others to easily locate this fabulous resource.

      I have only had chance to glance through it but have already learned some interesting things. It has also inspired me to visit the Catholic Catholic Cathedral in Birmingham to see the Shrine with the bones of St Chad.
