Holbrooks History

Foreword by Vince Hill

Compiled by members of St. Luke’s Church


Holbrooks in Coventry marks the northern boundary of the expansion of that city over the last century. Four brooks are now covered by housing development started to serve munition workers during the Great War.

Irish, West Indian, Eastern European and Indian workers settled later to establish a multicultural community linked to the wider world by the adjacent M6 Motorway. This book tells a colourful tale of the Coventry suburb and includes dramatic pictures from the Second World War.
