Lichfield Cathedral is the only medieval cathedral with 3 spires. It was rebuilt in 1349, in the Gothic style. It houses one of the world’s finest collections of medieval stained glass windows.
In World War 2, the Luftwaffe were instructed not to bomb it. The spires acted as an important navigational aid. The Cathedral has many gargoyles.
