Nestled in the heart of Staffordshire lies the peaceful residential village of Streethay, offering picturesque strolls along Coventry Canal, and just a mile from the remarkable cathedral city of Lichfield.
Packed with the thrills and spills of Drayton Manor theme park, just a twenty-minute ride away from Lichfield town centre, to the altogether more serene National Memorial Arboretum, there is certainly something to suit all tastes for those looking to put down roots in this fantastic area.
It is the birthplace of Samuel Johnson, writer of the first authoritative English dictionary, and he is honored with the Samuel Johnson Museum, dedicated to his life and works. The Grade I listed building contains a variety of displays, reconstructed rooms and audio-visual media, sure to entertain and educate visitors about Lichfield’s most famous son.
Elsewhere, woodland walks can be found Cannock Chase, popular among mountain bikers, while gentler times can be found at Beacon Park, situated in the city centre across more than 70 acres of beautiful gardens and open space. Featuring crazy golf, tennis, basketball, bowls and more, this public site certainly makes for a great afternoon out for all the family.
Those seeking a touch of culture are encouraged to pay a visit to Lichfield Garrick Theatre, named after 18th century actor David Garrick. This 719-seat arena has played host to many famous productions in days gone by, such as Shirley Valentine, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Brassed Off.
Keen fishermen can get their angling kicks at Stowe Pool, which provides a relaxing setting for course fishing. The site is also home to variety of birds as well as the native white-clawed crayfish.
In terms of education, Willows Primary School is one of the best performing schools in the county of Staffordshire, with an Ofsted rating of ‘outstanding’. Meanwhile, Lichfield Cathedral School is a thriving independent school with 97 per cent of students achieving at least five A*-C GCSE grades this year. A new primary school is also set to be built in the centre of Streethay as part of our redevelopment plans in the area.
Retail therapy is at hand along Lichfield’s medieval city centre streets, which are lined with tempting boutique shops and high street chains. For serious shopaholics, Birmingham’s famous Bullring is just a half an hour train ride away.
