Village, free entry
The village of King's Bromley is situated on the junction of the A513 and the A51, six miles north of Lichfield
Bromley is said to be derived from "bromeley" or "Broome Fields", which were prolific on the poor sandy soil of the Trent Valley. Earl Leofric and Lady Godiva had a hunting lodge in the village. The Earl died here in 1057 and his body was removed to Coventry for burial. His grand-daughter, Algitha, married King Harold and the Parish passed to him and it is assumed this is how the "kings" in title came about.
The annual Kings Bromley Show tales place in the village on the 4th Saturday of July.
