Does anyone know where these old and new houses are in Coventry, maybe Hillfields, I thought, with the top shops. Edited by member, 6th Sep 2014 10:30 pm

Hi there Morgana. The new housing could be in any number of estates around Coventry. That style of housing is en masse all over. The older building look like the old Palace Yards or around that area (inner city). But I'm sure people will confirm the right place for you. All the best. Baz. Thumbs up
Always looking forward to looking at the past.

Thank you Baz, yes the new estate could be anywhere, I first thought Henley Rd then it could be Willenhall or Cheylesmore. Edited by member, 6th Sep 2014 10:57 pm

The older houses are weavers' courts in Spon End and elsewhere on that website I think it mentions that the new houses were in Willenhall.
