NeilsYard I was in Coventry last week to attend my sister's funeral and stayed at an Airbnb at 11A Lower Ford Street. I was surprised when your post came up. The property was behind the first house in Lower Ford Street, I think it would have been part of the old Francis Barnett site. There are now two large blocks of flats on the site which seem to be student accommodation. I was surprised at the amount of rubbish left on the street in Lower Ford Street, we are not used to seeing this in Perth. We used the X1 bus service to get to and from Birmingham Airport, good value at £2.00 per journey and runs every 20 minutes. Alan H

Hi Alan Wave Sorry for your loss - a shame we couldn't have met up with Rob etc for one of our breakfasts. I didn't think there was much left of the old FB site. Do you have a link to the Airbnb at all or any pics?

Neils Yard After reading the details of the Airbnb site, I have realised it was not part of the FB site but was a coach house. There is a similar one behind the old Chapman glass shop, this also seems to have been modernised. Alan H

On 11th Dec 2014 3:24pm, Prof said: I recall that the Lower Ford Street chapel was called Rehoboth or similar name. On the opposite side near a bus stop was the Welsh chapel with of course the notice board written in Welsh. I think this was nearer to the Art College, Ford Street.

Similar to previously posted views but still pre-Sky Blue Way although the BTH building has now gone -

Another bit of that old row as it was coming down - all part of the clearance work for Sky Blue Way -
