But add an 's’ and make it Broadgates and you had a college in Oxford in the 17th century.

With the announcement of another winter like 1983 perhaps this could be Broadgate, despite changes.

Its only Monday but I'm already claiming this weeks ‘Find of the week’. OK credit should actually go to Cliff Berwick from the True Cov FB page but.... As per Anne’s newspaper clipping #389 and the mentions of the 'new' Prudential building that never quite opened before being destroyed - we've finally found an image of it almost complete. This is the only ground level photo of the mock Tudor facade that I have ever seen. It must be a very late 1940 photo and also shows some terrific detail of old Broadgate before destruction hit. I think it’s been taken from a bedroom window from The Kings Head Hotel. Enjoy in all its XL magnificence!

NeilsYard, You’ve lost me again, which building almost complete? I would have placed it as the large building where the tram/bus meet, bottom of the churchyard. I would also place it a tad before the raid. My picture is quite blurred.

Good picture Neil. This is the only shot I've ever seen from that side. Kaga, yes, it's the new mock Tudor building on the corner of Broadgate and the Trinity grave yard. The steelwork from it was installed at some point in 1939. Britain From Above 1939

It’s this one Kaga that Anne found. It was supposed to be their new Coventry office but was barely completed when bombed. It was on the corner of the old Broadgate buildings post Butcher Row clearance. By where you walked into Spicerstoke/Derby Lane. The idea was to frame Holy Trinity, to mirror it was the Timothy Whites mock Tudor one on the other side.

NeilsYard, Thanks, didn't realise it was so large. That’s what threw me.

NeilsYard, The Prudential opened its first office in 1906 at 47 Earl Street. In August 1938 they bought a new site, the building half-timbered. In March 1939 during the work on the site two old copper coins were found. One dated from the reign of William and Mary, 1689-1694; the other from George II, 1727-1760. They opened in March 1940 at 11 Broadgate. In November 1940 they moved to 1 Queens Road.
