Fittingly located in the centre of town, Lady Godiva's statue stands proud reminding everyone of her heroic deed when she rode naked through the town to warn everyone of impending danger.

The statue is in the midst of the hustle and bustle of it all. While you can argue over the veracity of its myth, it's a great marker and meeting point.

I remember this statue when it was the centre of Broadgate. Then, of course it was on a traffic island but it still had some presence. Now it lags the dignity of old. It's still a beautiful interpretation of the Leofric legend.
