The town of Coventry is the setting for many of England’s historical tales (including that of Lady Godiva!).
The Coventry Cathedral has its own story to tell.
In the second world war, during the Blitz on Coventry (November 14, 1940), this cathedral burned.
The astute observer may notice that there is no roof; only the walls remain. This could be attributed to the flat roof the cathedral had, compared to a gabled or arched roof that would let the bombs roll off.
Today the cathedral is a footprint of what it had been. After the war, most of the town of Coventry had to be rebuilt. The cathedral and surrounding roads are the only reminder of what used to be.
