I always thought she bent her head to the church in those far off distant religious times.

As a child I remember Broadgate from the early 80's up to the 90's. In the right corner (near Owen Owen) I remember the buses driving over the cobblestones. I knew even then that this was not new. I loved the sound and look. Question I have is, were they from the original Broadgate? The area has changed so much over the decades, were they a sixties attempt at the old days?

It depends where the cobbles were Gumnut. It took me ages to notice that the east side of modern Broadgate wasn't where it had been before the war. An entire depth of buildings was turned into road. It was obvious that the west side was built over what had been buildings. The original pavement was just to the west of Lady Godiva. See Britain From Above below and Old Maps. Usual suggestion to zoom in or out as appropriate. New Broadgate Old Broadgate Old Maps of Broadgate

Like Helen says the buildings on the west side of old Broadgate in relation to today were more or less along the line of where the Cathedral Lanes tent was so the cobbles where the buses sat that I remember in the 70's/80's were almost certainly moved there. The NW corner of 'new' Broadgate where the entrance to The Leofric was was pre-war in Market Place! Edited by member, 20th Oct 2020 1:44 pm
