J3474 : "PUFFIN" crossing, Queen Elizabeth Bridge, Belfast - October 2015(2)
See [[4698582]]. The new lights seen from the bridge. My experience is that the opening of the M3 Lagan Bridge removed most of the through traffic making the road quieter than it was 25 years ago. At one time pedestrians crossed by a subway [[1138847]]. Continue to [[4698600]].

TQ3583 : Cranbrook Estate
This statue, in front of some of the low rise buildings and tower blocks that comprise Cranbrook Estate, is a representation of the blind beggar of Bethnal Green by Elisabeth Frink, dated 1958. The blind beggar was reputed to be Henry de Montfort, son of Simon de Montfort, who having lost his sight at the Battle of Evesham in 1265, ended up begging at a crossroads in what is now Bethnal Green. This unlikely riches to rags story captured the imagination of Tudor audiences and has been passed down the ages; it gave its name to the pub on Whitechapel Road where Ronnie Kray murdered George Cornell. Clearly the Metropolitan Borough Council were sufficiently impressed to grace their show-piece housing estate with this public artwork. In fact, the historical record suggests that Henry de Montfort was killed at Evesham and probably never came anywhere near this corner of east London - but then why spoil a good story?

J3474 : "PUFFIN" crossing, Queen Elizabeth Bridge, Belfast - October 2015(1)
The Queen’s Quay end of the Queen Elizabeth Bridge has become a busy pedestrian and cycle crossing since the development of the Titanic Quarter and, particularly, since the open of the Metropolitan College. New “PUFFIN” lights [[2759755]] have now replaced the conventional lights which controlled the crossroads. A temporary set of instructions is displayed for those not familiar with the concept.

I could not find the track marked on the 1:50,000 map. The road loops around the Bervie Water and climbs gently on the southern side.
