In the ruins of the old Cathedral of St Michael we see Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret with clergymen making their way towards the new building. The Queen talks to Sir Basil Spence, architect of the new cathedral. The royals are escorted by Lord Provost, Bishop of Coventry. Inside the new cathedral we see a huge congregation gathered for the consecration, including numerous clergymen. Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Ramsey makes his way to the altar past organist. Trumpeters sound fanfare on arrival of the Queen. Shots of the Baptistry window by John Piper, tapestry on East Wall by Graham Sutherland, modern gold cross. #Coventry #History #RoyalVisit Credit - The British Pathe
