Geo-Trips :: London to Coventry

Coventry

A drive from Aylesbury, Sat, 4 May 2019 by David Howard

There was another rare (unique) pre-Worboys sign in Ryton, so whizzed (metaphorically) up the A5 and 45 beyond through Rugby, and then continued to the ring road, up to the next junction and back along the parallel A roads, using the map to take different routes each way to increase my coverage. It was a lovely summer's day and was nice to wander around in the sun in the fringes of Coventry.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
