The Coventry Telegraph have announced the latest proposals for our Guildhall. The only good thing I can see is for the medieval kitchen to be restored, but the originally planned rooftop bar (which was bad enough) is now to be dropped in favour of a bar in the Armoury (the large room upstairs behind the Minstrel's Gallery). Access to this will be via a spiral staircase in the Great Hall!!! As if that wouldn't be incongruous enough, it's hardly wheelchair friendly either - something I thought was particularly important nowadays? But of course, our Coventry Society's objections are being ignored, as usual. Some democracy we live in!

I take it that it will be a new spiral stair case and not the existing one? Not so bad accessing the bar from the bottom but not show eashy on the shway down hic. Cheers It talks about a lift. The obvious place for that would be from the kitchen as modern entrances already break into the armoury end wall. That end of the kitchen isn't so interesting either.

And I can see a few names being etched into the monumental brickwork. If you are thinking of whizzing down on the handrail Helen it's going to be a bit rough on your posterior Lol Lol

Lol I'd be more worried about landing on my face. I would hope that nobody would be allowed to get squiffy enough to start carving their name anywhere Oh my
