The Glass Bridge

Lady Herbert's Garden, Coventry


Here is quiet spot in the City Centre.  Those are almshouses
in the background.  The Glass Bridge is curious, but I love to walk on it.
 Built in 2003 as part of the Phoenix Initiative to regenerate parts of the City Centre.


I am going to show you the view immediately to my left so you
can see the reality of what lies close by.  


Coventry Transport Museum.  An absolute 'must see' if you visit
Coventry.  Afterwards, go for a 15 minute walk in Lady Herbert's Garden.

All taken today in the sunshine :).

The bridge seems to be in two different worlds... a peaceful park and then dead smack in the city.

That is cool! I was gonna say "smashing" but thought better of it, LOL

Coventry seems to have changed since I last visited. I don't recall such a beautiful garden so close to the city centre.

That bridge is an interesting addition.

I think I've said this before, but you live in a gorgeous place! And that glass bridge is a delight!

An interesting bridge.

Thank you for these great photos. Is the bridge actually in Lady Herbert's Gardens? One of my favourite places in Coventry - brings back lovely memories.
I remember seeing the first crocuses peeping through under the trees there when we first arrived in Coventry in March 1963!

Fantastic! Love this series! :)

I will certainly take your advice. William's comment is what I was thinking. Quite a contrast between the verdant park and the cold concrete.

That last one spoiled the moment but then I should have expected it with the glass bridge

Lady Herbert's Garden used to be place to be avoided, things have obviously changed!

You're on Lauren, if I make it to Coventry, I'm there for sure :)Must be quite an experience to walk on the glass bridge, is it just the sides that are glass, or the floor as well?

Halcyon said...

The view is certainly different from inside the garden. I will keep your suggestion in mind if I'm ever in Coventry!

How stunning. You got an amazing shot.
