Canterbury Arms Lower Ford St Canterbury has been an important centre since Roman times and became a place of pilgrimage after the murder of Thomas-a-Becket in December 1170, though why the name was applied to this pub I do not know. It was owned by the Leamington Brewery in 1903. The Canterbury stood parallel to the Foresters and was a very similar pointed shape on that odd junction of Raglan Street, Alma Street and Lower Ford Street in Hillfields. In 1974 it was closed and later demolished.
