Sunshine, poppies and a new icon at Lichfield


Always interesting to see how people are marking the centenary of the end of World War One. At Lickfield Cathedral they are creating a new icon. Artists are actually working in a studio created in the cathedral and you can peer through a window at them.

Next to the studio are more traditional ways of remembering the war dead - a chapel and Remembrance Book. They are very moving in the summer sunshine. This candle will be kept lit until Armistice Day 2018.

It's next to one of the most beautiful illuminated books I've ever seen - filled with the names of local men who died.
These flowers were on the way out - a reminder of summer outside.
And the stunning Cathedral facade in the sunshine.
