Thomas King House, Wellington Street, Coventry
Thomas King House, Wellington Street, Coventry, taken 6 years ago
One of a number of similarly-styled tower blocks dotted about the northern fringes of Coventry, standing like sentries as if to provide early warning of incursions by Nuneaton or Hinckley. They are distinguished by projecting white concrete bands and closely resemble designs by City Architect, Arthur Ling. Built by him or his successor, Terence Gregory, in the early-mid 1960s.
This one was about to be refurbished, including renewing interiors and the roof.
