Coventry Old Cathedral II by In-the-picture Coventry Old Cathedral II by In-the-picture
St Michael's church was largely constructed between the late 14th century and early 15th century. It was the largest parish church in England when, in 1918, it was elevated to cathedral status on the creation of Coventry Diocese.
This St Michael's Cathedral now stands ruined, bombed almost to destruction during the Coventry Blitz on 14 November 1940 by the German Luftwaffe. Only the tower, spire, the outer wall and the bronze effigy and tomb of its first bishop, Huyshe Wolcott Yeatman-Biggs, survived. The ruins of this older cathedral remain hallowed ground - the new cathedral was built next to it in the 1950`s...

Taken at Coventry, West Midlands, England

Coincidentally I was in this exact same spot less than 3 weeks ago and taking the same shot. Only difference ..... it was bucketing down with rain when I was there!! No surprises there :D

Indeed - still a beautiful church though especially with the last light of day making it glow like this
