Coventry City Walls - Coventry

The remains of Coventry City walls include several lengths of C14 city defences. Historic England funded a conservation management plan for the walls in 2010 which the City Council is now in the process of implementing. A Historic England Repair Grant was accepted in 2016 to address assorted building fabric repairs to both Swanswell and Cook Street gatehouses and the connecting length of wall between them. Project development works are due to take place in summer 2019 with repair works planned for completion in 2020.
