My friends and I used to call in sometimes on the way to or from Devil's Dungeon. We always had a 'shake before doing the Canley Ford bicycle 'challenge'. Never realized that the area had any ecological importance back in the '60's, and a little surprised to see that it has now.

It must be 40 years ago since I saw a large sculpture at Canley Ford, has anyone any knowledge of this? Or a photo? It would solve a family query as no one remembers it. Thanks. Edited by member, 23rd Jun 2015 9:55 am

Just heard on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire radio that the Canley Ford Milk Bar metal sign has been stolen. What a shame. That place has so much history. Facebook link. Edited by member, 2nd Jul 2015 4:16 pm

That is a shame Garlands, perhaps they should be looking for it at the scrapyards or car boots. Nothing surprises me anymore, sad to say. Edited by member, 2nd Jul 2015 5:00 pm
