Discover

Welcome to the 'Discover' section! Here you will find insights into the fascinating studies being undertaken by our StreetLife researchers.

The project examines the history and heritage of Coney Street, but also aims to inform its present and future. From medieval guilds to the Second World War blitz, from early printing to modern musical heritage, we hope you find something interesting here.

Our research may perhaps even jog a memory you have of Coney Street. If so, we would love to hear from you! Either contact us, or visit the StreetLife Hub on Coney Street.
