Great post! World in Action was one of my favourite tv themes and shows of all time, speaking of which, where was this place?, my guess is edgwick or foleshill, but the entire documentary is well worth a watch.

[admin's note: YouTube's goto feature is a bit haphazard so I recommend jumping to the 8m20s mark]

Hi Cheburashka :wave: the only similar unit I can find any reference to is or was in Torrington Avenue, Tile Hill but it might not be the same one?

I don't think it's Edgwick, it looks far more central to me. Could it be Gulson Rd Hospital? At 8:41you can see out through the windows, but I can't relate to anything.

Thread now duplicated in the Local History section in the the hope of getting more replies:

"Coventry Industrial Therapy Unit" (1978)

Please post any further replies on this subject in that section. :cheers:
