Coventry Cathedral spire is known as a flèche. It is 80 feet high with a Flying Cross sculpture on top (by Geoffrey Clark). A closer look is called for when I get a telephoto lens. This somewhat unusual spire was lowered on to the flat roof of the new Coventry Cathedral by helicopter in 1962 in two stages. The flèche first, then the sculpture was placed on top.
When we were in town today, the sky was blue for a good part of the morning. Hooray! We went on our usual walk to the area known as The Cathedral Quarter (see below).

Have a great weekend all. See you next week. That's the plan :).
PS. Saw the film, 'I Give it a Year'. The previews looked funny but those were the best bits. For me, I should have 'given it a miss'. Disappointed.
