Steven Orland's Coventry, Now & Then

Priory Row and the old Belfry

Most of Priory Row has not changed much since before the war, but one thing that is now missing is the old campanile, or belfry, which belonged to Holy Trinity Church, and stood just across Priory Row from the church. The first photo is from a 1907 postcard.

The old wooden belfry actually survived the WW2 Blitz, but was removed some time after the war. My photo was taken in December 2006, and now the belfry is gone, you can see Blue Coat School behind it....
