Back in October 2008 I posted some pictures of 2 abandoned houses in Coventry, UK. When I originally posted, I couldn't find any background information about them and had to be vague about where they were as the site was a lot more active than it is now. They've recently been in the local newspaper as the bigger house has suffered a serious fire and will probably be demolished soon. A brief history of the site is here. Some much better pictures than mine, taken over the period 2007-11 are here. The local paper has published articles about the recent fire and some pictures of the fire. There is a campaign to try and get it listed to save it but I don't think it has much chance of success.
