Damaged crypts to be restored at Coventry Cathedral

Coventry Cathedral, a 14th-century Gothic church, was almost totally destroyed by German bombs in World War II. Now three of its medieval crypts are scheduled to be restored and opened to the public.

Two of the crypts in the Chapel of Unity and the Wyley Chapel are filled with water and will be dried out during the £216,000 project. The third is filled with rubble and dates to Tudor times. Historians are especially interested in the third crypt about which little is known.
