Allesley Park to Coundon Wedge


Look closely for the history all around

Transcript of a Coventry Evening Telegraph Country Walk with Ron Weston 6-May-2006 , with updates where needed

4 miles, Map 221 Explorer

THIS walk in the Allesley Village area includes the walled garden from C1780 whose restoration lies today in the hands of a group of volunteers.

The garden once produced fruit and vegetables for the Lord of the Manor whose house stood on the site of the present hall now used as a care home.  Yet more volunteers look after the village conservation area and the Jubilee Nature Reserve while Coundon Wedge is tended by the Coventry Countryside Project.

Take your time and look closely for bits of history dotted about the village.

HOW TO GET THERE:

From Coventry follow the Allesley Old Road from the top of Four Pounds Avenue for one mile to Allesley Hall Drive on the left and follow it to the free car park. GR 301801.
