'original ground' is the definition.
'crushed' can be an answer for 'ground' (thesaurus). I'm not certain of the 'original' bit.

'hurried past coventry's' is the wordplay.
'hurried' becomes 'rushed' ('rush' can be a synonym of 'hurry').
'past' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'coventry' becomes 'c' (this could be a standard abbreviation I've not previously seen).
'rushed' after 'c' is 'CRUSHED'.
