Do buses really go down Hill St today? I'm amazed Neil but thanks for the photos.

Hi Prof, Wave Sadly, no longer. The intervention of the ring-road put an end to that.

Thanks, Philip. I did think that Holyhead Road would be in the same category. Only upper reaches of both streets.

This great image from a 1914 newspaper has just surfaced on FB. I had not seen quite that angle before from that period and did not realise how narrow it was.

Hill Street 1823 I think that the building on the right is the small chapel, dedicated to St Lawrence and St Mary that preceded St Osburg's Church. The full painting shows a dirt area in front of the church. I do know that some of this was absorbed into the roadway, thus widening and straightening it. Though I think that the old chapel may have been further back from the road than the modern church. Here it is shown on the 1807 map. The chapel doesn't appear on the 1749 map. There was a fair bit of land around this chapel. It was this building that might have catholic burials in 1826. Request about St Osburg graves in 1826 by Tony1

I have found that a lot of information can be gleaned from searching the records on the Coventry Collections online catalogue of the Herbert Art Gallery. Many of the references have a comprehensive list of what the document says. Recently looking for any information on a branch of my tree I have started to look at again I came across a "Bargain and Sale with Feoffment" 1657 document which sorted out 3 generations of the Harwar family including wives. It also gave a good description of the land which I thought might be of interest. The basis was that Robert Hill and his son were buying property from Samuel Harwarr senior for £316 a close once called Dudman's Well Fields, now the great Conduit Meadow (occupied by Samuel (ii) Harwarr, lying outside Hill Street Gate between Hill Street and Barkers Butts Lane (Barkers Butts Lane is a continuation of Hill Street but another reference implies that there was some access-lane hereabouts). Cow Close, Little Conduit Meadow and "Roue Oake" Field. To be held by both the Hills with priority for the father, then his heirs. I can't find this marked on any map but I would imagine it to be around the area of Coundon.

Anne. There is a Ro Oak Road off Barkers Butts Lane of course, is that near enough to give an indication?
