Location details

Coventry is a city in the county of West Midlands in England and is well known for its rich history of industry. By the 14th century, Coventry was the fourth largest town in England with an estimated population of 8,000. It was an important centre of the cloth trade, and throughout the Middle Ages was one of the most important cities in England. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Coventry became one of the three main UK centres of watch and clock manufacture.
