A guided tour of the historic Chapelfields district, purpose-built for Coventry’s watchmaking community in the 1840s. As we follow in their footsteps we will visit over thirty locations associated with the watchmakers who lived, worked and died in these streets, and hear their own personal stories as well as those of the businesses and traders who settled in Chapelfields.

The walk is an information-packed one mile long, starting and ending at Hearsall Baptist Church, on the corner of Queensland Avenue and Fife Road, and lasts approximately two hours. We start and end at Hearsall Baptist Church, on the corner of Queensland Avenue and Fife Road, opposite Hearsall Common (CV5 8FE). Cost is £10 per person.

A walk on the dark side of the streets, with true crime tales from Coventry's grim history on almost every corner. Hear how the caretaker of a prestigious city centre office slit the throat of his sister in law - with whom he had enjoyed an illicit affair, fathering her young child - when she began a romance with another man, and the story of the vengeful printer who took exception to his former business partner's success so swore revenge: by shooting him at the High Street premises.

That's not to mention the tale of a woman who desperately attempted to conceal the birth of her newborn daughter before her unknowing husband returned home from a four-year prison sentence, or the churchwarden who took furious exception to the insistence of a member of the choir at Holy Trinity to bow at the name 'Jesus' during hymns, so locked him in the vestry until he promised not to do so.

The walk is one mile long, with just a few steps, and starts and ends at the Godiva statue in Coventry's Broadgate (CV1 1NE). It lasts 90 minutes. Cost is £10 per person.
