Here's another great shot of the Railwaymen's Cottages in that row as mentioned earlier in this thread.

I may have missed this from before so possibly not new to their site but Warwickshire Railways site has this terrific image of the yard, and a close up.

You are right, Slim. They were derelict and awaiting demolition in about 1970. At one point some of us used to go round there at lunchtimes. One day a group of us actually managed to demolish a whole outhouse, comprising two coalhouses and two outside WCs, in a lunchtime. We did attract the attention of one of the younger teachers who remarked that it was not only keeping us out of mischief but was saving money on demolition costs too! Lol One lad had a real downer on 'Fred' Perry, the librarian, and over a couple of weeks removed a few dozen books which he stored in a box in one of the cottages. Eventually Fred realised and all hell broke loose as usual. I think the books were eventually returned though. The cottages were often used for various pranks as I recall as they were so easily accessible behind the then new 6th Form Centre.

Not sure if I've missed this one before but returning to the excellent Warwickshire Railways site I found this brilliant image of the yard circa 1961. You can just see the roof of The Rocket and Warwick Road and that passageway under the roadbridge which is nowadays so slim.

Following my earlier image of Coventry's own 'Specials' on a press shoot behind Horizon on the goods yard - just found this one on the same day/shoot - interesting as its in colour! I've mentioned this before but my dad regularly parked on those cobbles on our weekly Saturday morning trip to town. This must be circa 1980 and as can be seen over Jerry's shoulder, there were still tracks in use even though it was probably just for storage. Edited by member, 1st Sep 2018 6:39 am
