Friends of Sherbourne River

Friends of Sherbourne River is a new group which was set up after the Civic Day event held at Charterhouse on 21st June 2014. A small group was formed all of whom have concerns and interest in the health and future of the river.

We have meetings and clean-up days along the river. Also we have been working closely with many agencies who control the river and the land connecting to it. We want to improve the quality of the river, to protect all its wildlife and provide a walking route along all of its length. Not many people know of Coventry's Sherbourne River and that it flows through the city centre as most of it is covered or built over.

The river starts at Corley Rocks flows through Coundon Wedge, Allesley, Spon End then it goes undergroud by Ikea under the city centre. You can see it in a small part behind the Burges in Palmer Lane then it goes undergroup passes the swimming baths and comes out at the bottom of Gosford Street. It then flow through Charterhouse Fields then through Whitley joining the River Sowe just past the Jaguar plant. They both flow into the River Avon.

We are testing the water to find people who would like to join the Friends of Sherbourne River and become a member contact:-
