 "The Chesils"​ is a name of unusual interest, for though it is not recorded on any map, it seems to have lived in Coventry for hundreds of years and has been handed down verbally from generation to generation.

 +The road called "The Park Paling"​ adjoining Whitley Common, is of great interest. The Cheylesmore Estate (more generally known as "The Park") was surrounded in the Middle Ages by a continuous wooden paling, and the new road named after it is actually adjacent to the line of the old paling.

 +"​Locksmiths Close",​ in the centre of the most exclusive residential part of the estate, bears the medieval name of a piece of land not far from the Cheylesmore Manor House, while Humphrey Burton, Town Clerk of Coventry about 1610-1650, and a man who devoted much research to the early history of Cheylesmore is associated with "​Humphrey Burton'​s Road".

 +One of the finest central roads will be "Queen Isabel'​s Avenue",​ in memory of the grandmother of the Royal owner of Cheylesmore"​.
