The left hand side of Bray's Lane/Stoke Park side also had sandstone ashlar which may have come from the city wall or gates.

I don't know a year, but I recall paddling in it in the early 1970s - and by the 80s I'm pretty sure it was just left as it was, but empty. It would be interesting to learn when it was grassed over.

Thanks Rob. I was asking for my daughter in law, she says she used it in the 80s.

Greg, Yes, they are great photos but that granite trough - there was one similar quite close to you at one time at Main Farm, just above the 'Slough' - it was still there in 1950s, all grown over with nettles, brambles and such, near the old dutch barn. It had been replaced by a tin one similar to the old tin baths, with a small pipe that fed it from as far away as the canal - all would have disappeared with the highway I presume.

I recall using it when I was around 10 or 11 years old. That would have been in 1982-3.

It was full of water in 1970 because I ended up swimming in it after my stag party.

The Cressage, Stoke Green 23 May 1931. My parents' wedding reception. Pattison's Dancing Class, held there and later the daughter Betty Pattison had a pre-school crĂȘche my younger brother attended, aged 3. I believe the house still stands near Stoke National School.

Greg, the tree in your picture post #7 is Jabet's Ash, marking a boundary of the city where royalty and others of importance would be met by the Mayor and brought with ceremony into the city. This goes back to medieval times when Coventry was a city of much importance. The photo above it is of the stocks on Binley Road, near the Bull's Head by the former C & NW cricket ground.
