The Palace
The Palace
The Palace in Cathedral Close, overlooking Lichfield Cathedral. The house was built in 1687, described as Queen Anne-style, though built fifteen years before she came to the throne. The house was home to Barrister, Gilbert Walmsley, friend of Samuel Johnson and David Garrick, and later to poet, Anna Seward. From 1860 it was home to the Bishops of Lichfield, and from 1954 it has been part of Lichfield Cathedral School.
