Snapshots of Coventry Cathedral


Following on from my blog posts on Wednesday and Thursday,  
I am concluding with a few more images
that stood out during my recent visit.  

Ceiling
The rib vaulted ceiling hides the natural roof.




Chapels
There are four small chapels within the Cathedral.  
Below are the entrances to two of them.

Chapel of Christ the Servant


Chapel of Christ in Gethsemane


Windows 
The placement and design of the windows is breathtaking.
The West Screen (below) is enormous.





Below - The Nave Stained-Glass Windows left
and The West Screen to the right.


The Baptistry Window (below)


Coventry Cathedral is a modern building
that I really didn't appreciate to the full
until I put together this collection of photographs
over the last 3 days.

Have a good weekend :).

I enjoy every image you take in the cathedral Lauren, here in the rebuilt cathedral and the old cathedral ruins of course are spectacular! I really hope the cathedral clergy see your shots.

Magnificent does not begin to capture the grandeur of this place. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos. I can only imagine what it is like to be there and see this in person. And if I haven't said so before, I love your header photo. It's rather sad but yet inspiring!
