Development over time
Illustrations of the development of the village.
Binley Woods’ history is relatively modern as this village only began settlement during the 1920s. Estates of Coombe Abbey were sold off and so residents moved to this area and began to settle. During the 1940s wartime period, Coventry was heavily bombed forcing many to move away from the city centre or left homeless. This period saw an increase in settlement as many had to find a new safer place to live futher away from the city centre.
The late 1950s saw Binley Woods formally adopt its current name and in 1987 a village church was established.
