SP3378 : Mile Lane

taken 7 years ago, near to Coventry, Great Britain

Mile Lane
Mile Lane
The spires of Holy Trinity, left and St Michael's, right seen from Mile Lane. Some years ago this view would have shown red-brick factory buildings of the Parkside site close by the pavement's edge. The area to the right has been cleared and now houses buildings of Coventry University's technology park.
Parkside factory site
During the first half of the 20th century motor manufacturers occupied most of the area south of Parkside to the railway line. Names include: New Beeston, Swift, Maudslay, Velox, Iden and Deasy but the major occupier was Armstrong-Siddeley from 1919 to 1960, after which it became the Bristol Engines division of Rolls Royce which closed on this site in 1994. Since then the site has been cleared and occupied by a mix of offices, technology park and housing.
