ISITORS to the ru­ins of old Coven­try Cathe­dral will be able to see it in all its for­mer glory, just as it would have looked had it not been bombed by the Ger­man Luft­waffe in 1940, us­ing a new and in­ge­nious app.

Avail­able from Novem­ber 15, RIS­ING Ru­ins has been cre­ated by the RIS­ING Global Peace Fo­rum (https://ris­ing.org), funded by Coven­try Univer­sity in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Coven­try Cathe­dral. It uses spe­cial tech­nol­ogy that de­tects the user’s lo­ca­tion and sur­round­ings, cre­at­ing an im­mer­sive, 3D vir­tual-re­al­ity re-cre­ation of the 14th- to 15th-cen­tury church as you stand within it.

The ru­ins of St Michael’s Coven­try re­main hal­lowed ground and are Grade I listed; its spire is still the tallest struc­ture in the city at 295ft.

Victorian Grade I-listed Cleve­don Pier, which Bet­je­man called ‘the most beau­ti­ful pier in Eng­land’ and which was nearly de­mol­ished in the 1970s, is this year’s Peo­ple’s Favourite in His­toric Eng­land’s Her­itage An­gels Awards. An­nounced on Mon­day, the awards cel­e­brate those who take ac­tion to save their lo­cal land­marks. Visit https://his­tori­ceng­land.org.uk for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion
