Lichfield Cathedral is holding a limited number of public tours of its Library this year. One of the cathedral’s best-loved treasures, the Library houses a magnificent collection of early printed books and hand-copied manuscripts. Highlights include a 15th century copy of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, one of only three surviving hand-coloured 16th century printed copies of Christopher Saxton’s map book of Tudor England & Wales, and a manuscript set of orders signed by Charles I.
