So what was that all about then?
Walsgrave? All I can see is St Austell Road, Wyken.
Same one, or is there two?
Two 27 yr olds had an argument
One decided to waste the other
53 woman Suspected of assisting an offender.
You want it to be WYken, let it be Wyken.
Coventry Observer says Walsgrave. All splitting hairs really isn't it, when it'd be more interesting to know what it's all about.
Yeah, wasn't being funny, just that, that's where my parents live and just checked on the CT and they said Wyken.
Hence my asking if there were maybe two stabbings.
BBC says Walsgrave.
Well that's the kind of thing you don't want in your road!
Well, yeah. Think maybe NW took my post the wrong way.
Just know a lot of people in Walsgrave (relatives and friends) so there was a personal angle to it.
Don't know anyone in Wyken and you immediately think of friends and family first don't you.
You do indeed Otis.
The woman was arrested by armed police in Hermitage rd and the car taken away on a truck . I know this because I watched it happen through my window.
P.S the police have been parked up here all week keeping an eye on something, they may have known something was on the cards
Rumour down the millpool earlier was Mobile phone. Broad daylight is not good. Usually happens 3am not midday on a Sunday. RIP danny
Hopefully you are not a suspect, spider.
No Otis, i could name the lad but won't on here. It's generally quiet round here thankfully.
Oh dear. Did you know him well, or just know of him?
If it's the lad I'm thinking of he's always been a bit of a handful, but i didn't know his name at all, he was at school with a neighbours daughter and they told me his name earlier.
Recently moved from Newey Road (next road up from Hermitage road and the only reason I’m mentioning it) in ‘Wyken’, as it was called when we bought and sold the house, to Eastern Green.
We actually lived in Upper Stoke according to our voting cards but less chance of selling by saying that. My mate lives on the next street to where it happened and he’s never said he lives in Walsgrave.
Got relatives on that road and it's definitely wyken. Police been scanning the road searching for evidence and doing door to doors.
It’s definitely Wyken.
Don’t personally know the lad in question but appears a number of my friends do as have seen numerous status’ about it.
Either way to be stabbed to death in the middle of then street is a horrendous way to die.
Clifford bridge road separates walsgrave and Wyken.
Not strictly true as in fact Coombe Park Estate is classed as Binley.
Are we about to have a turf war?
Always thought the River Sowe did.
Yes true but wyken and walsgrave don’t run the full length of the city.
The Sowe could be classed as the boundary but it runs vaguely along the line of Clifford bridge road along the point in question. Either way the place where the stabbing happened was Wyken not walsgrave
How far exactly does Stoke extend to?
This is the official polling area which nobody goes by. I lived in Wyken when I actually was one street out of it.
You basically go on what sounds better. For example, Hillfields is called ‘Close to the University and city centre’ if you are selling your house.
I love estate agents and how they expand the decent areas outwards.
Anyway, this thread hasn't exacty gone as I expected...
(A fair bit of your map is Binley. The Ward and the area are two separate things again!)
Another 27 year old man has been charged with the murder
As a kid I lived in Parry Road which was Wyken. Hill's map seems to stop at Blackberry Lane.
Caludon Castle has always been Wyken, ergo St Austell Road is Wyken,
Woah I always had Wyken as starting basically once you're past the Forum, I was miles off. I always claimed to live in Stoke but going on the polling maps I was one block inside Hillfields, which explains my street smarts and rough edge.
So was it who you thought? The person charged local to you as well?
I've not seen who has been charged NW, but if his initials are RP then yes
Yeah but the electoral ward and the suburb are two different things. I agree that Wyken begins where Ansty Road does, following it east to approximately the former island by Walsgrave Hospital, maybe rondog is right about the Sowe being its border, makes a lot of sense.
Separate names with a comma.
