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.
Located in the county of Nottinghamshire, the city of Nottingham is home to some of the best shopping in the United Kingdom and has a fantastic cultural calendar and excellent pubs, bars and restaurants. The relatively small city centre, with its pedestrianised streets and tram system make it easy to get around. There are many attractions in and around the city and three worth mentioning are The Galleries of Justice Museum, Nottingham Castle and City of Caves. The award winning Galleries of Justice Museum offers an insight into crime, punishment and British justice. The museum is housed in a former 18th century prison and contains the largest collection of police memorabilia in the United Kingdom. The first incarnation of Nottingham Castle was built by William the Conqueror's son following the Norman invasion in 1068and stood until the 17th century. A new castle was constructed and then destroyed in 1651 but was restored in the 19th century as a museum of fine art. Finally, the City of Caves provides visitors with a unique perspective of the city. Visitors can enter the caves beneath the city and descend into the dark depths of the original Anglo Saxon tunnels.
