This was the first clue on our city treasure hunt. In the market square and quite an imposing sight. City is full of history

We found this statue right in the heart of the market place on a busy Saturday. James Boswell was born in 1740 and is know for his biography of Dr Samuel Johnson who is famous throughout Lichfield.
Lovely statue standing high on a pedestal with inscriptions around the sides.
Look out for this and many more statues as you walk around Lichfield.

Thank 2014Jandy
