Tile Hill Lane
The 1930s houses are dwarfed by the casino on the corner of Tile Hill Lane (B4101) and Fletchamstead Highway (A45). It was originally opened as the Standard Cinema in 1938, the last venture of Coventry's first cinema owner, Mr Augustus Pell. Later named the Godiva, it continued as an independent cinema until the 1970s.

Tile Hill Lane is one of the main roads into the city centre from the western side of the city.
