Quote of the Day

'I lately took my friend Boswell and showed him genuine civilised life in a provincial town. I turned him loose at Lichfield, my native city, that he might see for once real civility.' – Sam: Johnson. 

(The picture shows Percy Hetherington Fitzgerald's jaunty statue of Boswell, which stands in Lichfield marketplace.)


  1. You have the delights of the annual Ride and Stride church extravaganza to look forward to once you move to Lichfield. Perhaps you may have encountered its splendours already? We had a wonderful day exploring Staffordshire churches last weekend.

  2. Excellent. Look forward to it.
