Three Horse Shoes, 20 Much Park Street

This name probably came from heraldry, referring to the Worshipful Company of Farriers (1673) or the Ferrers family, earls of Derby, whose name is derived from a placename, not farriery. In 1756 four soldiers were billeted here. In 1772 the pub was mentioned in evidence in the Toll Gate Murder trial. The suspects had been drinking ale, rum and water at the Three Horse Shoes until 11 or 12 o'clock at night. In 1854 the pub was to let and comprised bar, parlour, club room, lrge parlour, back kitchen, sitting room, eight chambers, washhouse, out-offices, large yard and stabling, ciach house, skittle alley, brewhouse and excellent cellaring. Impressive, but it closed in 1856 and the fitting and fixtures aere sold. Much Park St Godiva Procession 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 1912.
