Basement on site of Old Star Inn, Earl Street, Coventry - Coventry

Late medieval cellar of an inn now incorporated in the Civic Centre. Significant erosion of the sandstone took place as a result of water damage. The stone vault was propped in 2008 and damaged stonework repaired. The buildings above (with the exception of the recently listed former architects' offices) have consent for demolition. A scheme for new buildings incorporating the listed buildings is under discussion.
