Stoney Road Allotments - Coventry

A group of mid and late C19 detached urban pleasure gardens retaining a nationally significant group of C19 and early C20 summerhouses and associated structures. The site is still actively used as allotments and tenanted by the Stoney Road Gardens Association (SRGA). The summer houses are the principal elements at risk, and have not been maintained since listing in 2001. A conservation management plan has been produced (2018) for the gardens but not yet formally adopted. The SRGA are currently preparing a grant application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund to repair the summerhouse.
