Lichfield Cathedral. in the Staffordshire city of Lichfield, is dedicated to St Chad and Saint Mary and is located in the Staffordshire city of Lichfield. The cathedral has an internal length of 113 meters and is 21 meters wide. The cathedral's central spire is 77 meters high and its western spires are both around 58 meters high. The cathedral was constructed out of local sandstone which was quarried for a site to the south of the city. Interestingly, the walls of the nave lean slightly outwards due to the weight of the stone used in the vaulted ceiling. The stained glass window of the Lady Chapel contains some of the finest medieval Flemish painted glass, having originally come from the Abbey of Herkenrode in Belgium in 1801. Modern day Lichfield has retained its status as an ecclesiastical centre and the city has managed retained over 200 listed buildings.
In the 18th century Lichfield became a busy coaching centre where Inns and hostelries grew in order to provide accommodation. Industries dependent on the coaching trade such as coach builders, corn and hay merchants, saddlers and tanneries also began to thrive. The main source of wealth to the city came from the money generated by its many visitors. However, the invention of the railways saw a decline in coach travel, and with it came the decline in Lichfield's prosperity.

Visitors to Edinburgh can take in its stunning scenery, breathtaking architecture and fine food. The city is surrounded by a beautiful coastline and countryside in the nearby Lothians. The city is the world's festival capital, with the Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city sits atop a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags which rise from the flat landscape of the Lothians with the sheltered shoreline of the Firth of Forth to the north. The city skyline is dominated by Edinburgh Castle where, from its ramparts, visitors can gaze down on medieval lanes and elegant terraces that contain over a thousand years of history. On the night of 30 April the Beltane Fire Festival takes place on Calton Hill, involving a procession followed by scenes inspired by pagan old spring fertility celebrations. At the beginning of October each year the Dussehra Hindu Festival is also held on Calton Hill. 'Edinburgh,' said writer Robert Louis Stevenson, 'is what Paris ought to be'.
