converted to flats - 1982.

Laurel and Hardy played the Coventry Hippodrome twice. In 1947 they appeared
there for two weeks. They were back in 1952, but then, for some unknown reason,
didn't return during the 1953-54 tour. In 1947 the Boys uncharactereristically
stayed at different hotels. Stan Laurel stayed at the Abbey Hotel, in Kenilworth, while Oliver Hardy stayed
at the Clarendon, in Leamington Spa. Just why, is disclosed in the book.
In 1952 they stayed at the Chesford Grange Hotel, in Kenilworth.
