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 Heritage at Risk Repair Grant was accepted in 2016 to address assorted building fabric repairs in various locations including both Swanswell and Cook Street gatehouses and the connecting length of wall between them. Repair works have now commenced on three separate sections of the wall and these are due for completion in July 2020.
