Historic England has released hundreds of unseen images of Coventry Cathedral's construction.
The famous cathedral stands proudly in the heart of the city centre and plays an important part in Coventry's history. It was heavily bombed, along with the rest of the city, on the night of 14th November 1940 during World War II.
Despite the devastating impact on the cathedral, Coventry Cathedral was rebuilt between the mid 1950s and 1962, as a symbol of reconciliation and peace.
Now people will be able to see images of the Cathedral's construction for the first time, to mark this incredible moment in history.
It is part of Historic England's new image-based project called 'Breaking New Ground: The John Laing Photographic Collection'.
“We are delighted to bring to the public the fascinating John Laing Photographic Collection through digitising 10,000 images, which will be accessible to everyone through our website. The Collection offers unparalleled insight into the construction of 20th century Britain – covering everything from cathedrals, mosques and housing, to bus stations, bridges and motorways. We hope our “Breaking New Ground” project will shine a light on prominent and everyday British landmarks, and inspire the next generation to enjoy and engage in the built heritage all around us.” >
