98] The Birches, Tamworth Road
We are trying to find out something of the history of 'The
Birches', on the Tamworth Road. It was, at one time, the Nurses' Home for Keresley
Hospital, and may have belonged to Lord Iliffe. We would be grateful for any information.

98] COVENTRY'S GAY SCENE
I would like to see a conference about Gay issues and Gay
life in Coventry. For far too long gay people in Coventry have put up with sub standard
venues and terrible social facilities. It is fair to say that the Gay scene in Coventry is
almost as bad as the straight scene for the lack of excitement and quality. However, the
choice of pubs is appalling.
Although it has improved in the last year, the improvement
(mainly the opening of "Rainbows"), is still not enough. I think that it is time
that Coventry's gays stood together more and really developed a sense of community. Only
then will we be able to improve life in Coventry and combat the homophobia that some of us
encounter on a daily basis.

from the early 1800's until about 1927. The property was called 'Honey Hall Farm'. I would
like to locate any old photos, documents or other information relating to this property.
