Today was the 120 mile trip to Lichfield from Milton Keynes and back. Lichfield is a great little city and is a cathedral city in the Staffordshire of England. It has a beautiful big Cathedral, although it is one of the smallest in the UK. It is beautiful inside, how ever you are not allowed to take photos (the lighting hasen't hit me yet).
Notable for its three-spired medieval cathedral, Lichfield was the birthplace of Samuel Johnson, the writer of the first authoritative Dictionary of the English Language.
The city became home to many famous people including Samuel Johnson, David Garrick, Erasmus Darwin and Anna Seward and apparently prompted Johnson to remark that Lichfield was "a city of philosophers.
The centre of the city retains an unspoilt charm with over 230 listed buildings in its historic streets, Georgian architecture and old cultural traditions. People from Lichfield are known as Lichfeldians.
leaving Lichfield just as it started to rain. It was a shocking drive back. The traffic was awful and it rained and blow a gale, at times I thought my little car was going to be blown off the road, but made it home in one piece.
