Rose Inn Much Park St 1907 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. The rose is the most popular flower used in pub names as it is a national symbol. This pub is mentioned as early as c1270 in Gregory family documents. In 1447 it is called the Red Rose, but it ia back to just the Rose in 1756 when four soldiers were billeted at the Rose, Much Park Street. The licensee from 1868 to 18798, Samuel Sidwell, is called a licensed victualler and elastic weaver by the 1871 census. Another source calls him a consulting engineer, coal and timber merchant, cabproprietor and a member of the City Volunteer Fire Brigade. People had to be versatile in those days! The pub appears to have closed around 1910.
