Cowart's Common Room

It is many years ago that we visited Norte Dame. What an iconic cathedral. The Archbishop of Canterbury hit the nail on the head when he said, Coventry Cathedral was bombed and rebuilt and so will Notre Dame be. I hope they will rebuild it as it was, not try to modernise it. Already real money is pouring in and so will all the €5s from people round the world. If they use wood to replace all the wood that was destroyed, it will be a bit of a problem!

Fennie's Avatar Yes, Withy, so very sad. But it could have been worse. And these days rebuilding Cathedrals happens regularly. Nantes Cathedral suffered a similar fire some years ago and it has been rebuilt. So too the Frauenkirche in Dresden, Coventry and others.

Raining here this morning: the countryside looks sad. Sad

Faith's Avatar I visited Notre Dame last June for the first time and since then I have had a embroidered velvet decoration purchased there hanging in my bedroom. Terribly sad...... but are Cathedrals like this not insured? Bill and I were wondering.

Withy Brook's Avatar I doubt they could afford the premium!
I just pray that the rebuild is as near the original as possible!
