What is there to say?

What is there to say, it's a very nice statue and worth having a look at if you happen to be passing.

I was born in Coventry and remember clearly the statue of Lady Godiva. When she did her ride naked through the city the populace were forbidden to look at her.

Situated next to the peeping Tom clock, veiw on the hour to experience the full effect. A beautiful statue for a beautiful Lady. Worth to look into the history of Lady Godiva beforehand.
