Weavers House and Gardens - Heritage Open Days 2018

08 September 2018 - 09 September 2018 Every day
  • Location: Weaver's House, 121 Upper Spon St, Coventry CV1 3BQ
  • Time: 10:00 - 16:00
  • Cost: FREE

A terrace of six timber-framed artisan cottages built in 1455 known as the Black Swan Terrace.


Saved from demolition and restored by Spon End Building Preservation Trust, the project was completed in 2008. One of the cottages has been restored to show medieval features reflecting lives and times of early 16th century weavers. At the rear of the properties a garden has been created to show the range of plants that would have been grown in early Tudor times.

Tours will run every 20 minutes (depending on numbers and demand). Visitors are free to take their time if desired. 
Demonstrations will be also taking place, along with a children's trail.

Booking Details
