Yes it was, Prof, but I didn't know the location until after I'd first posted the picture!

My post 22. But I made the mistake, forgetting that this Peeping Tom from the bottom Hertford St originally now faces down Hertford St, and not across Broadgate. Here is the proof. See post 9 Midland Red for image.

David McGrory suggests in 'Coventry a History & Celebration' that the ancient oak figure of Peeping Tom (now in Cathedral Lanes) is a likely representation of St. George and that it came most probably from St Mary's Priory. However joined onto Gosford Gate was the Chapel of St George, and it seems to me more likely that it was kept in that Chapel and brought out for Processions and maybe even the Mystery Plays though they were based on the Bible stories.

When you see his full body he has the armour and bow legs of someone missing his horse.

Yes, I feel sure St George would have been on his horse originally and the arms were cut off to make 'Tom' fit the window aperture!

It's a pity Lady Godiva didn't ride down Pepper Lane, Peeping Tom could have shaken her hand. Thumbs up
