The garden of the Coventry Peace House
No peace at home
In this video Penny Walker shows us around Coventry Peace House, the only combined commune and environmental centre in the city.
Penny Walker was one of the founding members of the Coventry Peace House, a housing co-operative and peace and environmental centre on the Stoney Stanton Road.
Penny Walker from the Coventry Peace Hou
She set up the property in 1999 with two other protestors from the year-long peace camp at the Alvis tank factory on the Walsgrave Triangle in Coventry.
Renovating the property has been a struggle and, as this video shows, much of the work has been ruined by recent floods. Despite this, Penny loves where she lives and encourages others to join the co-op. Watch the video to see if you could be the extra house-mate they’re looking for.
