The Coventry Canal Basin Warehouse from the front end.

1787 - Coventry Canal Warehouse – First warehouses built

What we now refer to as Coventry Canal Warehouse was actually built in three separate stages between 1787 and 1914. The oldest section sits in the centre and can be identified by its more pale orange brickwork.

An excellent write up of the history of the Canal Warehouses and their adoption by the Coventry Artists Group / Coventry Canal Basin Trust can be found on the Coventry Society website here
