The amazing Cyclopaedia comes to Nuneaton

On Saturday 5 July, Lady Godiva came to Nuneaton for one day to set off a fantastic celebration: 'Nuneaton Lives'. Anne Taylor of Nuneaton CTC took part in the event.
The Cyclopaedia

Those of you who remember the giant Godiva puppet making her way by cycle power from her makers in Coventry to the London Olympics will know what an impressive sight she is. A 6-metre high model with realistic moving parts, she made her stately progress from the Ropewalk shopping centre through the busy Saturday market to the astonished gaze of the crowds.
