Some history of Coventry
More information on Coventry to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Coventry from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for detailed information on Coventry. In the meantime, I have placed a few old newspaper articles, along with a couple of photographs.
