Notes about this historic site

1 Here the Coventry Communication Canal, part of the private Arbury canal system joined the Coventry. This arm was the last section of the Arbury system still to be used, and its date of closure is unknown. The canal is shown as disused and marshy on the 1914 25″ OS map. The marshy remains of a narrow watercourse can be seen to the E. of the Coventry Road. Here the remains – one parapet – of a yellow brick bridge cross the canal. To the W of the road the canal is traceable but dry.
