Description

Coventry’s suburbs were once independent rural communities with their own district identities, but the relentless spread of the city has turned country lanes into suburban streets and sprawling farms into housing estates.

A closer look though reveals traces of a lost landscape and an almost forgotten way of life. Place names, historic churches, ruined castles, old inns, fragments of ancient forest and surviving common land all provide tantalising links with the past, and shed some light on the history of the villages that became suburbs of the city.

This superb DVD combines archive photos, historic maps, modern footage, exclusive aerial film and a lively commentary to delve into the history of Coventry’s villages and paint a fascinating picture of life there in times gone by.

The main districts covered are: Hillfields, Foleshill, Longford, Keresley, Wyken,. Walsgrave, Binley, Stoke, Willenhall, Baginton, Cheylesmore, Earlsdon. Stivichall, Chapel Fields, Canley, Coundon, Radford, Tile Hill and Allesley.
