Arising from the West Midlands Coventry enjoys the dubious distinction of
being further from a coast than any other city in the UK.
The practice of establishing sister cities, or twinning, was first begun
when Coventry twinned with Saint-Etienne, France in 1955.
It has since twinned, among others, with Cork, Ireland and other Coventry's
in New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, USA.
