Cook Street Gate - Coventry

The construction of this gate began in the early C14 and was completed later that century following a licence to crenellate in 1363. Inappropriate historic repairs, vulnerability to vehicle damage and stone erosion are all issues. A Historic England Repair Grant was accepted in 2016 to address assorted external building fabric repairs. Project development works are due to take place in summer 2019 with repairs planned for completion in 2020. The current proposal by the Historic Coventry Trust is to convert the upper room to a studio in line with the framework agreed with Coventry City Council.
