Most of the medieval figures on the Western Front of Lichfield Cathedral, damaged during the Civil War, were removed in 1744. However, a few were removed a later date (possibly 1749) by a young chimney sweep at the request of the Dean who was afraid that one of them might fall on his head on his way into or out off the Cathedral!
