Three four-storey blocks of flats, Tile Hill North, western Coventry
Three four-storey blocks of flats, Tile Hill North, western Coventry
The view is across Jardine Crescent. The flats appear to lack any vehicular access. Satellite photos show an on-road parking lane that clearly is not there now. Out of shot left is a construction site where the Tile Hill Social Club was: see SP2878 : Closed social club, Tile Hill, photographed in 2010. Out of shot right is the postwar St Oswald's Church: SP2878 : Bell tower of St Oswald's Church, Jardine Crescent, Tile Hill, west Coventry and related images.
Before World War II this area was fields, perhaps belonging to Tilehill Farm on Hawthorn Lane, bounded to the east by a wood called North Waste. In the early 1950s maps show a network of roads lined with small square dwellings on small plots presumed to be prefabs. The crescent was then Humphrey Wanley Crescent. The flats pictured first appear on a map of 1960; there was a court of lock-up garages off James Green Road but this is now houses. The crescent has become Jardine Crescent.
