taken 12 years ago, near to Coventry, Great Britain

Greyfriars (Christchurch) Spire
Greyfriars (Christchurch) Spire
The third of Coventry's three spires, the others being those of Holy Trinity and St Michael's, Coventry's second cathedral. Greyfriars unusual octagonal spire was originally that of the 14th Century church of the Grey Friars (the Franciscan order). It has survived the destruction of the church twice, once following the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII and once again when a Victorian rebuild of the church, then known as Christchurch, was destroyed by an air raid in 1941.
