Mystery of plinth stone found at old Coventry church – can you help?

A plinth stone found at a now-closed United Reformed Church in Allesley has thrown up a mystery for builders.

The puzzle centres on Brownshill Green chapel and church hall, on Hawkes Mill Lane, which a sign outside suggests was opened in 1887.

What appears to be a memorial stone reading “Laid by G. Singer Esq” has been found during building works at the site.

Building consultants SDC are looking for information.

We believe G. Singer may be George Singer, a 19th century cycling manufacturer and mayor of Coventry.

Do you have any information on his involvement with the church and the local community?

If you have any info, please comment on our Facebook page or email and we will pass it on.
