Crumhorns in Coventry

We liked Coventry so much we stayed an extra day. When we got up it was slightly disconcerting having Mr. Brindley right outside the galley porthole.

After going to Holy Trinity church for the "informal" 9.30 service - very good - we went to have a proper look round the Museum of Transport, much of which celebrates Coventry's long association with the motor industry.

There were several Morris 1000s lined up outside ...

... in front of a row of Jaguars.

Following a light lunch back on board we went to the Guildhall, open as part of the Heritage Open Days. In the courtyard a musician was demonstrating her wondrous collection of ancient woodwind instruments. Here she is playing the crumhorn.

We then went to Choral Evensong in Holy Trinity, also very good, and retired to the boat.

We'll move on in the morning, heading up the Oxford. Does the pub/Indian restaurant combo in Brinklow still exist? I want to find out - and I want the answer to be "yes".
