Thanks to the photographer the shot of Priory Row looks like something from a movie. Someone or something is going to come running out any minute. Sorry folks just me and my imagination working overtime. Roll eyes

Yes Dreamtime, it's a beautiful photo, but my! Not one dead leaf, not one tiny bit of trash, did anyone ever see it like this?

There's been a light sprinkling of portacabins instead of leaves and rubbish. Big grin

Perhaps to emphasize the triangular blue burglar alarm above the railings?

Thanks Prof. Very startling colour for an old building but a worthy reason I am sure.

I don't know if the remains that can be seen near the new cathedral are the same but those would have stood under out buildings at the rear of number 13. Some other walls may have originally remained under the front part ofthe house. Almost certainly, parts of St Mary's south wall will be being used as footings for the later buildings along Priory Row. There are other images connected to this building in the library, including very rough pictures of the cellar/s. Forum library image
My mate Alan Denyer who looks after the Visit Coventry website has been asking me about the cellar under DE Collins as discussed earlier, and passed on this shot. Did we ever confirm what actually happened to them - were they filled in or just covered over? Anyone know? Edited by member, 27th Aug 2019 9:58 am

I don't think that the wine cellars themselves were that old and as far as I know would have been demolished as they were right next to the new cathedral. However I get the impression that parts of the old cathedral were under/part of the wine cellars and were excavated as part of the preparation for the building. The north apse end of the old cathedral is still visible but I don't know if they were part of the wine cellar. What would have been the south side of the apse is now under a car park. So I don't know for sure but I doubt the cellars remain.

An article in the Telegraph June 1955 says they run up to Hill Top where they turn north for a short distance. They were to be sealed off at a point between the former wine shop and the restored Georgian house but a door will be installed so that they remain accessible. The future was to be discussed at the next month’s meeting.

Forum library image A picture of the wine cellar. The Georgian houses on Priory Row sat on the ruins of the old cathedral, they may all have had cellars built from the remains (up to the wine shop itself as that was at the end of the ruins). But were they all one cellar? The cellar under the rebuilt Georgian house remains and there is a door visible on the side but the wine cellar shown above could be gone.
