Lichfield & Moorcroft Pottery 23 - 26 July
including visit to the National Memorial Arboretum
Hoar Cross Hall
Lichfield, birthplace of Samuel Johnson has a wonderful cathedral which has 1300 years of history and is the only three-spired cathedral in the U.K. Here you can see the medieval wall painting, the rare and famous Herkenrode stained glass window and the Lichfield Angel, as well as one of the best preserved Cathedral closes in the world. There is a 13th century walled garden containing The Cafe in The Close. When in Staffordshire a visit to a famous pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, the ‘world capital of ceramics’, is a must. We are going to Moorcroft Pottery where heritage craft techniques are still used today and we can see these skills in action. The National Memorial Arboretum in Burton-on-Trent is a place of national and historical significance. The land train gives you the best method of exploring its awe-inspiring 330 memorials and 150 acres of maturing woodland landscapes which harbour a multitude of wildlife. We will also visit Baddeley Clinton (National Trust) en route on the first day; this is a secluded, intimate estate in the Forest of Arden with a 500 year history. Our hotel has steam rooms, sauna, plunge pool and gymnasium.
