We actually did that visit last year, along with St Mary's Hall which is all connected. By coincidence I ran into our esteemed Webmaster during that visit. In any case I did work for Coventry council many years ago and, in a professional capacity, got to see many hidden parts of the building back in the 70s.

Hi all, Hi M.R Wave Six days ahead forecasting is fraught with risk & uncertainty, but after the weather settling down during this week, next Saturday sees a risk of a period of unsettled conditions. Sad Wednesday, we might have a better idea. Wave Longterm rain forecast

Not strictly Coventry Heritage but a Rugby Heritage Open Day. I have tried to get a place on the tour of Cemex (Rugby Cement) a few times without any luck but phoned this morning and managed to reserve a place for Thursday and the weather forecast looks good. The view from the top of the tower should be incredible.

The Heritage Open Day at the Cemex (Rugby Cement) plant was very educational and highly recommended. The views were spectacular. Attached are 3 photos, one towards Coventry, one looking over the quarry towards Bilton & the third towards Rugby

I had a rewarding day yesterday, even if I got very wet with sore booties. Didn't see everything I planned but then I never do. I started by popping into the town hall and had a long chat with Peter about his model. He's finished more of the city centre and it's looking very cool. Even exchanged a bit of techy talk, which is a rare treat - most people's eyes glaze over Lol Saw the excavated pits in the back of Gosford Street bookshop. Not wildly exciting but a tangible connection to the ordinary people of the past. Some of their finds were instructive to me about what original building materials looked like and what people were doing. The amount of pottery and other finds would have made a great Time Team. Good to see and photograph the cathedral without all the scaffolding that's been there every time I've visited. It remains to be seen how many photos haven't got rain spots on them.

I didn't get round to many places over the weekend, but I did make a beeline to meet Peter in the Council House and view his 3D model of old Coventry - what a wonderful treat that was! The amount of work he's put in is mind blowing, and I really look forward to seeing how it develops over time (pun not intended!). Thumbs up
