I feel just like Rob in wanting to walk the streets of Old Coventry and whereas I could do it only in imagination what you are doing Helen is just fantastic. What a difficult but inspiring project this is! Congratulations!

Thanks for all the kind words. This really is a community effort because without you all it wouldn't be possible. Prof, I'm new to imagining Coventry but I hope I can do it justice. The final result will still be quite guessy but it will explain quite a few details that aren't immediately apparent from the sketches and paintings. It'll be several years before it's finished assuming I don't lose impetus. Next up is Ironmonger Row and the Bull Ring area. The building opposite the Pilgrim's Rest was called the Meal Hall (or Meat Hall). It stretched from the Bull Ring all the way to Cross Cheaping. It was a significant building but I've never read much about it. Anyone else heard of it? Guess where I found some info on the meal hall? Edited by member, 19th Jun 2017 11:39 pm

Ah, good ol' J.B. Shelton, I'm so glad his fantastic 1930s articles have come in handy - without him we would be so much worse off for our knowledge of the old Coventry beneath our feet. My biggest wish, though, is that he'd taken a camera around with him, as we're still left wondering about so many things that he described in the limited time he could muster before the builders moved in.
