W Is For West Window...

...Coventry Cathedral's Great West Window, that is.

This is the main entrance to the new Coventry Cathedral.  You can see the reflection of the ruins of the old Cathedral (which is behind me) in this magnificent window.  This window is 70 feet high and 45 feet wide.  The glass is supported by a bronze framework.

What a beautiful window - I'm having a lot of fun seeing each of your new ABC entries. The old cathedral may be gorgeous, but the new one has its own magnificence too!

I visited there in 1998 and was amazed at the destruction and the new building as well. I took a photo of my daughter in front of the statue on the front facing so I could see the perspective - the size of it compared to my daughter!
