Listed history at Coventry Station
Providing services between London Euston and Birmingham New Street, Coventry Train Station has excellent links across the country, while longer distance services include Manchester, Oxford and Bournemouth.
The station was originally built in 1838, but over the years has been replaced with a larger station and in 1995 became a Grade II listed building. From 2019, a £91 million redevelopment is proposed to start which could see more facilities added to its small selection of shops and cafes.
A spire triumphant
Just one and a half miles from Coventry Train Station you will find the war-damaged cathedral ruins.
They date back to 1300, and although a new cathedral was built parallel, the ruins still draw in a crowd. The spire stands at an impressive 295 feet tall, and survived the 1940 air raid that destroyed the rest of the church.
The new St Michael's Cathedral is a more modern structure yet is also a Grade I listed building.
