Coventry Old Cathedral

Interesting
The late 13C building with large-scale Decorated and Perpendicular additions was destroyed in 1940. All that remains are the walls, crypt, tower and the 90 m spire, one of the architectural glories of England, exceeded in height only by Norwich and Salisbury. The east end is marked by a simple cross of burned timbers, erected by an anonymous fireman using two roof beams when the fire was finally extinguished.
