Coventry information

Coventry is Britain’s city that is furthest from any coast and is situated 96 miles north-west of London and east of Birmingham.

It is an ancient settlement that was known to exist in the Bronze Age. At the time of the Roman invasion it was in the tribal lands of the Corieltauvi. The Romans established a fort nearby at Baginton.

The city is known for its legend of Lady Godiva riding un-attired through the city, which took place before William of Normandy’s arrival on the English throne.

By the 14th century, Coventry had become an important centre of the cloth trade. Throughout the Middle Ages it was one of the largest and most important cities in England.

In the 18th century Coventry developed as a centre for watch and clock making. By the 19th century these skills transferred to the making of bicycles, which evolved into motorcycle, machine tools and eventually car manufacturing in the 20th century.

As Coventry was such a centre of engineering, it suffered its own Blitz in the Second World War which, through the use of incendiary bombs, saw the destruction of much of the original medieval city centre, which was largely made up of timber framed buildings, alongside the destruction of the 14th century cathedral. Coventry lost 800 people to the bombs and 4,000 buildings.
