New houses and open space, Wood End, north Coventry
New houses and open space, Wood End, north Coventry
This replaces council housing built on farmland in the late 1950s, judging by old maps. There were terraces of houses and some small blocks of flats or maisonettes. Geograph has a few photographs of the original estate: SP3682 : Tachbrook Close, Coventry and SP3682 : Ashorne Close, Coventry from 2010; and SP3682 : Coventry: Former Wyken Mineral Branch Railway, Wood End from 2012.
The road on the left is Melody Close. The River Sowe is off to the right: is some of this new development in the floodplain?
Sowe Valley, Coventry
The River Sowe rises in Bedworth, flowing south towards Coventry; it winds through the city's eastern suburbs before joining the Warwickshire Avon near Stoneleigh. The Sowe Valley Footpath follows the river for over eight miles, mostly through naturalistic green spaces. LinkExternal link
