Question raised in the house tonight (well, the flat, really!) about Stivichall Hall, which is remembered as a ruin in the 1950s Does anyone recall this building, know its story, have any photos? Certainly would be appreciated Thumbs up

There is a picture of Stivichall Hall in David McGrory's book " The Illustrated History of Coventry's Suburbs" With a short piece about it. It was built by Arthur Gregory in 1755 and in the process they demolished the old village leaving only the Church and Stivichall Grange and a few other buildings. The estate was eventually left to a cousin Alexander Hood who later became Gregory-Hood he later sold the land for the memorial park in 1922. His son sold the estate to Coventry Corporation in 1928.
