    Walsgrave? All I can see is St Austell Road, Wyken.

    Same one, or is there two?

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Not strictly true as in fact Coombe Park Estate is classed as Binley.

    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

    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!)

    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.

    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.
