These are the remains of the old Cathedral. It was destroyed by incendiary bombs on 14 November 1940. Only its spire and outer walls survived. It is seen here from the air in July 1949. It is surrounded by empty plots where other buildings were destroyed in the Coventry Blitz. The interior of the Cathedral had been cleared and looks very much as it still does today. A new Cathedral was completed on adjoining land in 1962
