In which part of Coventry do you think these 19th Century style watchmakers cottages are located. You won't guess, it's something you either know or you dont know. I promise you though it is in Coventry, I haven't cheated in that respect. Lol

I was going to say it looks like the development that went up on the old City ground but it looks too green at the end of the road Dutchy. They might be trying to look more 19th century but why are all new developments so similar and boring looking.

Is it anywhere near the canal basin Dutchman? Just a stab in the dark! Roll eyes I daresay by the time I come on here again someone will have the right answer, and knowing you you are out to fox us all. Wink

Ah Dutchman I think I know this one. Is it the bottom of Beanfield Avenue, backing onto Ullathorne School playing fields? If not it looks remarkably like the houses they built there a few years ago! Thumbs up

Spot on Mayjan! I didn't think anyone would ever get it. Even Tricia would have difficulty recognising the area today and she had to walk down Beanfield Avenue every morning on her way to school!

Dutchman as I live in Beanfield and pass these houses most days on the bus I should be able to spot them lol. Thumbs up The School of Performing Arts was there before they demolished it and built the houses. I have always thought they looked out of place and I understand they are very small rooms inside. Yes Tricia wouldn't recognise it now. I think when she attended Bishop Ullathorne the 6th form block was situated on that site. Cheers

There was no 6th form block back then Mayjan. It was the site of the grammar school which was separate from the two secondary modern schools. There was no bus service in those days either. Pupils from all three schools had to disembark at the garage on the other side of Kenpas Highway and walk all the way down Beanfield Avenue which wasn't so bad, but in the afternoons we had to walk all the way up Wainbody Avenue which was exhausting and then queue for what seemed like an eternity for a bus. Only pupils living in Whoberley had a special bus provided. This was colloquially referred to as "The Fletch" as the official destination was "Fletchamstead Highway".

I stand corrected then Dutchman, of course thinking about it there woudn't have been a 6th form block then. Thumbs up Didn't know it was the site of the grammar school though When I first moved into Beanfield, it had just been taken over by Coventry Performing Arts, I worked there for a while.

Hi Dutchman, Wave no I certainly wouldn't recognise the area today. I used to walk down Wainbody Ave to school and walk up Beanfield after school, this way I managed to get on the bus before the mad rush/crush at the top of Wainbody. It was great to see the photo. Thumbs up
