8 Hay Lane
One of the Oldest Pubs in Coventry
The architecture is described as
Tudor Style with jettied upper floors.
The building has been altered and extended since
it was built in 1583.
It is located in the oldest part of Coventry.
You can just see the pub on the left here in Hay Lane.
The brick building was once a Crown Court
and Holy Trinity Church is beyond.
(Below) The Golden Cross is on right with
Coventry Cathedral ruins beyond and
former Crown Court to left.
There used to be another church (St Michael's Baptist Church)
on the corner where you can see a white sign (above). It was
destroyed in the blitz in 1940.
It is thought that in the 15th century this site was once occupied
by Coventry's mint for a short while.
