Caludon Castle Park
Address: Farren Road, Coventry, CV2 5EH
Caludon Castle Park is free to enter. It is located three miles to the east of Coventry city centre. The site contains two scheduled ancient monuments by English Heritage, including the remains of Caludon Castle which is Grade 1 listed.
The Historical and Archaeological Study of Caludon Castle records that the first house was erected on this site at around the end of the 12th century, further buildings were added or rebuilt with the main building location moving further north from its original position, to include a fish pool, during the subsequent centuries.
Today, only part of the banqueting hall wall remains together with evidence of the area occupied by the fish pool. The Park has been awarded a Green Flag for the last three years. Recent improvements to the park include the entrance gates, refurbished drive way and car park and a play area.
