This book is part of a project interested in listening to and recording the stories of Spon End, one of the oldest parts of the city of Coventry .

The area has attracted peoples from all walks of life for centuries: migrants, tradesmen, the homeless, students, academics, people rich and people poor.

A collaboration with local people, the project seeks to multi-vocally narrate the memories and histories of those who live, work or simply pass through the neighbourhood. Alongside the stories are quotes, maps, drawings and photos of the area – as well as the people that are found here.
