Lichfield Festival 2017

VENUE: The George Hotel

Playing on Friday 14 Jul 2017

A journey along one of Britain's oldest and most enchanting roads, which in the Dark Ages gained the name Watling Street. Today, this ancient road goes by many different names: the A2, the A5 and the M6 Toll. Watling Street is a road of history and fiction. Along this route Boudicca met her end, the Battle of Bosworth changed royal history, Bletchley Park code breakers cracked Nazi transmissions and Capability Brown remodelled the English landscape.

John Higgs joins the Festival to explore the history behind one of the region's most notorious A roads.
