In Feb 2017 I Brother Paul AKA The Deep FACT Friar discovered an unseen buried section of Coventry's medieval city wall. 26,000 people watched our LIVE Facebook video. The BBC, Coventry Telegraph & Coventry Observer picked the story up and splashed it across their front pages where
I preached about the history, heritage and culture of our city and how we should celebrate it more. (HURRAH!)
My sermon that day was about how we should be teaching more local history to give people a sense of pride by encouraging schools, students, tourists & you Coventrians to take a look at and explore our cities history via the remaining sections of city wall, the12 gates and 20 tower locations whilst dressed as a Benedictine friar.
My aim was & still is to share my passion and enthusiasm for the city. God willing, people who come on this tour will fall in love with the city again and see it in a whole new light through fresh eyes.
Our 1st year anniversary tour will cover 1000 years of history from AD 650 up to around 1662, We cover the 4p Axe, learn about Zakariah Peach and we share the wonder of Medieval Coventry covering Anglo Saxon, Medieval and Tudor periods.
*We may by this time have negotiated an opportunity for people to take a look inside somewhere that has been closed for years to the public and we have added a NEW family ticket and a NEW Group ticket. (Wooooooo)
So be prepared to be entertained, educated and take a look at this marvellous city like never before.
We meet at Coventry Priory Visitors Centre (BEHIND NANDO's CV1 5EX) from 13.30 and we leave at 2pm. It will take between 2-3 hours depending on photographers, pensioners and pee breaks.
Sense of humour is essential, a camera is a good idea and a pac a mac or brolly might not be a bad idea. Wear a reasonable pair of shoes. Heeley's are not sensible shoes and bring a snack to feed the wall mouse.
I look forward to showing you Coventry like you've never seen it before.
Hear endeth today's sermon.
Go in peace to your purse/wallet and book your ticket now.
Brother Paul AKA The Deep FACT Friar.
