SP3378 : Furlong Road

taken 8 years ago, near to Stivichall, Coventry, Great Britain

Furlong Road
Furlong Road
This road may well be 220 yards long although it's a bit difficult to tell where it ends. It stands at the approximate location of the private Puma Road, which ran east-west across the old Armstrong-Siddeley factory site. A new road, Puma Way is a little further north. The roads in this housing development follow a weights and measures theme and the namer-of-roads has come up with the combination name of Perchfoot Close on the right. One perch, rod or pole = 5.5 yards. 1 foot = 12 inches.
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.
