These images of Swanswell Park were taken on 28th January 2017. All images are my own.
These are some photographs which I took at Swanswell Park, Coventry. As you can see from the pictures, there are swans, geese, and other birds.
The water here is known as Swanswell Pool, and is the only surviving part of what was once a lake called Babba Luca. Coventry – Now and Then
Around since the 12th Century, the pool is thought to have originated as a medieval monastic fishpond. (Coventry City Council)
The park and pool are just on the edge of Coventry City Centre, around half way between City College and Lady Herbert’s Gardens. Along with the Gardens, Swanswell Park could be considered one of Coventry’s ‘hidden gems’, an historical landscape amid the modern city.
