Coat of Arms Bridge, Styvechale
Coat of Arms Bridge, Styvechale
The sandstone faced bridge carries the Coventry to Leamington railway line over Coat of Arms Bridge Road. It was built in 1842, when the then lord of the manor sold the land to the railway company on condition the arms of the Gregory family were incorporated into the structure. The trees beyond the bridge are in the Memorial Park.

This, together with Kenilworth Road, was a very popular route in the early days of cycling. So much so that Singer & Co. used the bridge as a backdrop to their advertisement for cycles in 1886.
