The Tudor of Lichfield
The Tudor of Lichfield
Built in 1510 this building spans many years of history, it was built when the Franciscan Friary was still standing. Below the groundfloor there are vaulted cellars which served as a prison for both Royalist and Parliamentarian depending on the twists and turns of siege. During WWII the cellars were used as a public air-raid shelter, sheltering 77 people. Since 1936 the same family have run it as a tea shop café.
