COPSEWOOD Grange, one of the city's most historic buildings, has been saved from the bulldozers.

It will be refurbished into 17 apartments as part of the New Century Park development off Binley Road in Stoke which also includes 329 houses, a shop and a new primary school.

Developers, the Goodman Group, had been considering knocking down the Victorian manor house.

But its inclusion last year on an at risk list drawn up by campaign group Save Britain’s Heritage and pressure from the Coventry Society appeared to have forced them into a re-think with the firm's plans for its refurbishment approved by the city council last week.
