Allesley Old Road
Allesley Old Road
At one time there used to be a drive leading off to the left at the cedar trees which led to a property shown on 1936-7 OS maps as High Field. In the 1960s Dulverton Court ( LinkExternal link )was built on the site, with access from Dulverton Avenue. Surrounding housing is of ca. 1930s vintage and is set several feet above the road. For many years this road was part of a coach route from London to Holyhead and at this point it climbs a low rise between the River Sherbourne and a tributary stream so it is possible that, in the days before adequate road surfaces, the roadway wore down into a holloway.
