Red Rose Inn, 35 Much Park Street
Once the through road to the "Great Park", one of Coventry's most ancient and appropriately named streets is Much Park Street, seen here in 1907 during the Godiva Procession. Whitefriars Gate is just to the right of The Rose Inn.
This is quoted as a famous old inn of Coventry in Mary Dormer Harris's 'Life in an Old English Town'. It is probably the ROSE INN, Much Park Street. Burbidge says that the Rose, Much Park Street, was known as the Red Rose and was used as a venue for Lancastrians to meet at the time of Henry VI and the Wars of the Roses.|
