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.

Anyone know of any images of Stivichall Old Mill? Also I'm a bit confused about the Old Hall as linked by Anne above and what remains today off the Leamington Road. Edited by member, 24th Apr 2019 3:00 pm
