I Spy….

David Evans, who does some great work over on BrownhillsBob’s Brownhills Blog, has set a challenge!┬áThere are two photos below, and David wonders whether anyone knows where in Lichfield each of them were taken.

Where is this?

 

We have a clue for this one! 'A cut(let) above the rest, perhaps?'

As Pat recently┬ásent me an email about the remaining medieval statues on the Cathedral, this seems like a good subject for a third question! I’ve read that there are five original statues on the north west tower. Has anyone ever identified which they are? I think I’d hazard a guess that there are two of them on the following photo, but I’d be interested to know what others think.


Thanks to David for contributing these photos, and encouraging us to keep our eyes open and not being one of the millions, as referred to on that sign!

    • It is admirable that you think it’s admirable that David went to St John’s! Ok that’s enough mutual admiration! By the way Ian, have you seen the comment about Booze King on Upper St John St? Looks like you were right about the blacksmiths! Just goes to show, you can’t just go by old maps and you need to talk to people too! Cheers :)
