With its medieval wall painting above the entrance door.
St Chad Gospels, it has been dated back to 730 ad which makes it one on the oldest books in Britain.
The famous Lichfield Angel dated from the late 8th century and was found during excavations of the Nave and was probably part of the original shine to St Chad.
An artifact from the Anglo Saxon Hoard, this is a computer generated replica.
The Cathedral under attack, quite a story in itself.
Lastly just up the road in The Hospital of St, John the Baptist is this famous window installed in the chapel in 1984 by John Piper. there is also a much larger version in Coventry Cathedral.
Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed the tour, Mike
