Ancient and Modern - some Lichfield Landmarks
 
The Borrowcop Gazebo

Standing on the City's highest point the Borrowcop Gazebo is one of Lichfield's little known gems. The current building was erected in 1805 following a public subscription. It was restored by the Manpower Services Commission in 1981 and is now maintained by Lichfield City Council.

The Martyrs Plaque
The Martyrs Plaque

The Martyr's Plaque dates from 1676 when it was mounted on the fašade of the original Guildhall. The sculpture depicts the three dismembered British Kings who feature on the City Seal. When the Guildhall was rebuilt in the 19th century the surviving parts of the plaque were re-assembled in the museum gardens. It was restored in 2010 as part of the Lichfield Heritage Parks project.

Sandfield Pumping Station

The Sandfields Pumping Station on Chesterfield Road was built in 1873 to help supply clean water to Walsall from the springs around Lichfield. Pumping ceased in 1997 and the Grade II* listed building, which still contains a superb Cornish Beam Engine, is now looked after by a charitable trust.
