Lying further from the coast than any other city in Britain, Coventry is the 10th largest city in England and the 13th largest in the UK overall. Along with its twin town of Volgograd, Coventry holds the distinction of being the first twinned town in the world, having established its twinning relationship with what was then Stalingrad during the Second World War, when local residents wanted to show their support for the Soviet Red Army who were fighting in the Battle of Stalingrad.
Coventry House Prices & Redevelopment
The housing market in the Sky Blue City has shown promising signs of recovery in the past year or so, with average house prices in some areas of the city increasing by as much as 7% over the past twelve months. However, these increases are not universal nor representative of regional fluctuations within the city. Additionally, given the countrywide consensus that the housing market will soon begin to cool more quickly in reaction to tougher lending restrictions and concerns over rising interest rates, these anecdotal increases may not last much longer.
Several areas of Coventry are currently being regenerated, or have redevelopment project plans in the pipeline. Work started on Council House Square in October and is intended to link with completed works at the Little Park Street/New Union Junction as well as Gosford Street Junction. There are also ongoing works at Trinity Street, Spon Street, High Street and Gosford Gate. Recently completed rejuvenation has occurred at Broadgate, Gosford Street, Hertford Street and Bishop Street Pocket Park. The city centre is currently witnessing large scale refurbishment and, outside the city centre, Canley is currently being redeveloped as part of the Canley Master Plan.

Coventry Tradition & History
Significantly predating both Leicester and Birmingham, Coventry is the most ancient city in the Midlands, with archaeological evidence showing that there was a settlement near the modern day city as far back as the Bronze Age. Coventry is widely believed to have developed from this ancient settlement, which is generally held to have been inhabited by the Corieltauvi tribe.
The Romans founded a settlement at nearby Baggington, which now borders the city of Coventry, and, later, a Saxon settlement developed around a nunnery that was founded by St Osburga in 700.
Canute and his Danish army razed the Saxon settlement in 1016 and, in 1043, the Earl of Mercia, Leofric, and his famous wife Lady Godiva built a Benedictine monastery on the site of the ruined nunnery. The monastery was dedicated to St Mary and, gradually, a market began to be held and the settlement subsequently expanded.
Coventry claimed city status by ancient prescriptive usage and remained one of the most important cities in the country throughout the Mediaeval period. An important centre of the cloth trade, Coventry was granted a charter of incorporation in 1345 and became a county in its own right in 1451.
According to common folklore, the phrase “send to Coventry” derives from the manner in which the city treated Royalist prisoners during the English Civil War. Legend has it that although they were adequately housed, fed and cared for, the staunchly Parliamentarian population of the city utterly refused to speak to captured supporters of Charles I who were detained in the city.
Along with Prescot and Clerkenwell, Coventry established itself as one of three major centres for the manufacturing of clocks during the Industrial Revolution. Though the industry eventually waned in the face of Swiss competition, the highly skilled labour force located in the area subsequently helped Coventry become a major centre of bicycle manufacturing in the late 19th Century.
In 1885 James Starley released the first commercially successful safety bike, which he named the Rover. Along with his nephew James Kemp Starley, they developed their Rover company which, by the early 20th Century, had evolved into a manufacturer of motor cars. By this point, Coventry was a major centre of the motor manufacturing industry in Britain. Nowadays Coventry is home to the design headquarters and head office of Jaguar Cars, now owned by the Indian company Tata Motors.
Industry in Coventry continued to boom after the First World War and, with a large number of economic migrants attracted to the city, several new housing developments were built in order to accommodate the burgeoning population. These developments included Radford, Coundon, Canley, Cheylesmore and Stoke Heath.
The importance of Coventry’s industrial base to the rest of the country was the principal reason for it being targeted by the Luftwaffe during World War II. The Coventry Blitz occurred on 14 November 1940 and caused destruction so extensive that the Germans actually coined a new word – ‘Coventrate’ – to describe the type of complete urban destruction that constituted the tactics employed during the raid. Over 4,000 houses, three-quarters of the city’s industrial plants, the vast majority of Coventry’s historical buildings – including the Mediaeval town centre and the historic cathedral – and massive swathes of the rest of the city, were all destroyed.
Over 800 people were killed and many thousands were injured during the infamous raid which, while most probably ordered because of the large number of munition, armament, aircraft and aero-engine plants, is believed by some to have been Hitler’s revenge for the RAF raid on Munich six days before. Only London, Hull and Plymouth suffered worse destruction at the hands of German bombers.
Coventry experienced an economic Golden Age during the 1950s and 1960s, principally driven by its booming motor industry. During this time the city was largely rebuilt according to the Gibson Plan. The UK motor industry began to decline heavily in the 1970s and, by the early 1980s, Coventry had one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country.
Nowadays, though electronic equipment, machine tools, agricultural machinery, man-made fibres, aerospace components and telecommunications equipment are all produced in the city, Coventry’s economy has moved toward a base defined by business services, finance, research, design and development, creative industries, logistics and leisure.
