The history of bicycle, then motor vehicle manufacture is charted through streets set out in the relevant periods of history.
We also found Spon Street, an old medieval street with reconstructed shops from the period. As long ago as the 12th century Spon Street played an important role in the prosperity of Coventry.
A Spon Street shop with the modern IKEA behind.It was here weavers made high quality woollen cloth and dyers and tanners worked next to the river.By Georgian times Spon Street was an important centre of watchmaking. Now it has exclusive independent shops and businesses.
Next stop the Cathedral. We love the way the new modern cathedral sits alonside the old bombed out shell of the original. The old is a very special place where the focus is one of peace, forgiveness and reconciliation. I took loads of photos here, come and enjoy a walk around with us.
