SP2979 : Under the A45

taken 11 years ago, near to Eastern Green, Coventry, Great Britain

Under the A45
Under the A45
The footway and brook running from Lower Eastern Green under the A45 (Dunchurch Highway) to the brookstray between Allesley Park and Whoberley estates. I suspect the underpass originally housed the brook alone, and the footpath was added as the housing was built up on either side of the Highway. It seems graffiti artists like to have wet feet. What's at the other end? (see SP2979 : The brookstray )
Coventry has several stream courses along which building had been avoided due to the risk of flooding and 1940s planners envisaged that they could be developed as 'brook-strays' providing 'green wedge' public access land from the city centre to the outskirts.
