Lichfield Cathedral

Lichfield Cathedral was founded in AD 700, one of the earliest in the UK and a religious and historical site of great importance. It serves the fifth largest diocese in England, covering towns and cities such as Tamworth and Stoke-on-Trent, and a rural area stretching to the Welsh border. Our Strategic Vision 2014-2023 sets out one of our key roles as ‘a place of discovery, learning and nurture’ as well as a place of worship and tradition.
