To change the subject slightly I was interested to see Heathite's aerial view of Quinton Pool. I see that the site of the old Cheylesmore Pub is now an Asda! On the accompanying map the roads are clearly visible. My paper round took in Woodstock, Montault and William Bristow Roads for the princely sum of 22/6d a week, morning and evening rounds too! The Sunday morning round was so heavy I had to do it in 2 stages.

That's a long round coventry49 especially during the days when most people had the daily and evening papers and some of the Sundays often consisted of four papers and a book, also most of these houses have got separate entrances or driveways. Add to that the slope on William Bristow and I reckon you earned your 22/6! The Cheylesmore pub had been struggling for many years and despite constant reinventions it eventually closed. Several ideas were put forward for its use including flats and a Community Centre and like a lot of empty buildings it mysteriously burnt down when there was a problem with planning permission. I think the land was vacant for about four years before the Asda was built driving of the foxes who had taken residence there.

A quick picture I took today whilst giving the swans (and everything else) their pre-Christmas lunch. By the time I'd finished I was totally surrounded.

Was walking around Quinton Pool today and noticed this box attached to a tree, wasn't sure what it was but after looking online I think it's a bat box. Edited by member, 2nd Apr 2017 9:36 pm
