Please, can anyone remember HIGHFIELD STREET. It was located in the Foleshill area, in the region of Station St. There are notes about Highfield Road, but they are not in the correct area. Thank you

According to Pictures of Coventry it is now called "Eld Road"

According the the "Meaning of Coventry Street Names" book, the name change took place in July 1931. This places my 1932 map as being slightly out of date by still labelling that street as Highfield Street. My 1936 map shows the updated name, Eld Road. Hopefully the two scans below will be of interest.... (looks like nearby Stanley was 'upgraded' to St. Elisabeth, too!) 1932 map 1936 map

Thank you both so much. This site is a 'gold mine'. I was organist for forty years at a church in Foleshill, where the address of an early twenties' minister was Highfield St. Best wishes Philip
