The History Of The Lichfield Conduit Lands Trust 1546 To 1946

WAS £29.99 £14.99

Product description

On the 3rd day of January, 1546, just four centuries ago, the citizens of Lichfield came into possession of certain lands and tenements outside the city, whose revenues have proved to be the finest single benefaction, out of many, which has been granted to them.

It is the purpose of this brochure to recount the story, not only of the origin of this gift and of its greatly enhanced value as time has passed, but of the wise and careful husbandry of its trustees and innumerable ways in which, throughout these 400 years, the city has benefited by it.

This rare book is a very interesting piece of social history and was published to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the formation of the Lichfield Conduit lands Trust. It is illustrated throughout with photographs and drawings.
