Living in Styvechale

Styvechale is a suburb to the south of Coventry, located in the CV3 and CV5 postcodes. Once a rural parish, the Styvechale estate was owned by the Gregory family until it was bought by the Coventry Corporation in 1919. Some of the land was used to create the War Memorial Park while the area locally known as Styvechale Grange saw a glut of house building in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Today, Styvechale is a popular residential suburb chosen for its walking distance to Coventry city centre and the main train station. The suburb is often referred to as Stivichall.
