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.
