Treasures lost in Coventry Cathedral ruins since Blitz to be uncovered

Treasures lost in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral since the Blitz are to be uncovered for the first time in 70 years.

They include an underground network of ancient crypts and chapels, and a large haul of medieval stained glass windows.

Dr Jonathan Foyle, of the World Monuments Fund, and David Porter, the cathedral’s canon for reconciliation, will launch the project on Monday night – the 71st anniversary of the 1940 raid.

A cathedral statement said the pair would reveal “exciting plans” to “uncover previously unseen treasures”.
