Visiting Coventry Cathedral

On my first day in Coventry I wandered around the city for a few hours with no real destination in mind.  Just a few blocks from my hotel, I stumbled upon the Coventry Cathedral ruins.  The original cathedral was built in the late 14th century, and was heavily bombed by the Germans in 1940.  Only a few walls and the outer spire survived, but they’ve taken great pains to maintain the original site while building a new, more modern church alongside of it.

The cathedral has a virtual tour available if you’re interested in more history.  Here’s a few photos I took as I walked around:

 

Poker Update

No updates to speak of as I haven’t been playing poker since I left Galway Ireland.  I’ll be playing in a few tournaments while I’m here in Coventry and will update with results.

 

Goodbye for now,
