Lord Brooke's Plaque


Lord Brooke was an English Civil War Roundhead General, who commanded Parliament forces in Warwickshire and Staffordshire. Lord Brooke was killed during the 1st siege of Lichfield Cathedral in 1643.

The plaque (pictured) situated above the doorway of Brooke House, records the site of Lord Brooke’s death. Lord Brooke was shot through the eye from the central spire of Lichfield Cathedral by a deaf and dumb sniper, John Dyott, who spotted the distinctive colour of Lord Brooke’s uniform.
