Producer: Buckingham Covers

 

When Coventry Cathedral was destroyed by bombs in 1940, the people of Coventry set about rebuilding it as sign of faith, trust and hope for the future of the world. They succeeded. We produced an official Christmas cover for the rebuilt Cathedral's 40th Anniversary. The avant-garde design has made this one of our most collected pieces. In fact, it is Cath Buckingham's favourite design.

Coventry Cathedral

Coventry Cathedral, also known as St Michael's Cathedral, is the seat of the Bishop of Coventry and the Diocese of Coventry, in Coventry, West Midlands, England. The current (9th) bishop is Christopher Cocksworth and the current Dean is John Witcombe.

The city has had three cathedrals. The first was St Mary's, a monastic building, only a few ruins of which remain. The second was St Michael's, a 14th-century Gothic church later designated cathedral, that remains a ruined shell after its bombing during the Second World War. The third is the new St Michael's Cathedral, built after the destruction of the former.
