Here's a photo of St Agnes Lane, off Hales Street. The Hippodrome was built over it.

The picture is from about half way down the lane, looking north. The original St Agnes Well was sited on the very left of the photo (before the building was erected) and fed a small stream that flowed into the Radford Brook, just before it joined the Sherbourne. Later a pump was put in, slightly further up the road on the right and probably tapped into the same source. Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 10:49 am

Thanks so much Helen F for the detail. I had no idea. It interested me because in the 50s-60s I knew an old lady who was born in the Lane and who was also prepared for a life of service at the Blue Coat School, Priory Lane, and who I talked to many times on the subject of Old Coventry (pre WW2).
