Coventry Cathedral, Chapel of Unity windows
Coventry Cathedral, Chapel of Unity windows
One of two chapels standing outside the main body of the cathedral, the Chapel of Unity is lit by narrow slot windows of clear glass and abstract narrow stained glass windows by the artist Margaret Traherne at the end of each of its 'buttresses'. Here, the stained glass lights of the far side can be seen through a clear glass slot window on the near side. Also visible are the outside of two stained glass windows. The plinth steps could do with a little TLC.
Coventry Cathedral
The cathedral church of St Michael stands alongside the ruins of the earlier St Michael's cathedral which was largely destroyed by bombing during WW2. Built by John Laing Construction Co. Ltd. to a design by Sir Basil Spence, it was consecrated in 1962. Sandstone faced. A grade I listed building.
