Lined with trees that are lit up at night, Minster Pool & Walk also features a Remembrance Garden and Speakers’ Corner Lichfield.
With views across to Lichfield Cathedral and the Garden of Remembrance, it’s the perfect place to come for a picnic or to simply sit and watch the world go by.
Inspired by a visit in 1772 to The Serpentine in London’s Hyde Park, the poet Anna Seward was instrumental in landscaping Minster Pool to give it its curving snake-like shape and in developing New Walk, later renamed Minster Pool Walk.
Minster Pool & Walk were restored in 2011/2012 as part of Lichfield Historic Parks project, which was part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Big Lottery Fund.
Lichfield District Council is responsible for the pool and Lichfield City Council is responsible for Minster Pool Walk. If you spot anything that needs urgent attention, please contact Lichfield District Council’s parks team on 01543 308867 or Lichfield City Council on 01543 250011.
