Nonconformist Chapel to the Cemetery, London Road, Coventry - Coventry

Cemetery chapel 1846-47, probably by GH Stokes, at southern end of the mid-C19 cemetery, landscaped by Joseph Paxton in an informal style. The building is disused and in a vulnerable condition. The Historic Coventry Trust has plans for the cemetery to become part of a Heritage Park and their options appraisal, completed as part of this proposal, identified alternative uses for the chapel. The current proposal is to convert the building to an office, in line with the framework agreement with Coventry City Council, once a project timetable has been agreed.
