SP3279 : Holyhead Road, Coventry

taken 8 years ago, near to Coventry, Great Britain

Holyhead Road, Coventry
Holyhead Road, Coventry
The Holyhead Road was cut through from the city centre to Allesley as part of the improvements to the London-Holyhead coach route made by Thomas Telford in the 1820s. It was straighter and had a more even gradient than the previous section which went via Spon Street and the Allesley Road (now Allesley Old Road). The photographer's position would have been the centre of the road before the Alvis retail park necessitated changes to the road layout.
