That ones a different shape and design to the one I have though, so maybe there's a whole range of them.

Without wanting to appear nosey - most people know that Sir William lived and ended his days at Wappenbury Hall (and indeed was buried at Wappenbury Cemetery) however many are not aware that prior to that he lived in Coventry on Gibbet Hill Road. The property was/is known as Woodside and was for sale five years ago - Woodside sale - I'd like to think snapped up by a Jaguar enthusiast! (for a mere £700k!)

You are correct Sir William did live on the Gibbet Hill Road and I made many visits as a television engineer when I worked for G R Marson Ltd (see Image). George and Sir William were good friends. I included the image as a reminder for anyone who might have also used this company and bought TV’s from them.

A section of the old Swallow Road entrance is still clinging on for life! Edited by member, 15th Aug 2019 12:38 pm
