Stained Glass

Every now and then, I notice small pieces
of stained glass in the Old Coventry Cathedral Ruins.



This is my latest find.  
The top shot was taken a few weeks ago.
The one below was taken last week with much different looking skies.

Well done. I never noticed any glass in the windows of the old cathedral.

Great view, hopefully there is a restorer, who cares for it.

I imagine this cathedral is a muse for you. It's one of those places that never stops showing you its treasures.

Amazing that something as fragile as glass has survived for so long! How old are the ruins?

A little bit of magic to find them!

Nice spot Lauren. Hear they moved the Frost Fair away from here at the last minute this year?

I love every image you show us from Coventry Cathedral Lauren...how beautiful are these little colourful glimpses of its former self.. I didn't say former beautiful self because I find the ruins of the cathedral exquisite in their own right..

Petrea - You got it exactly :).
