NUMBER 3: Clovenstone to Mayfield

NUMBER 3: Clovenstone to Mayfield

Wednesday September 19th 2007

Get on at Clovenstone, 2.24pm.
A man sitting behind me talking on his phone saying his bus pass is fucked. The trees are still green and swaying in the wind. Go over the canal and a warning sign with a duck silhouette on. A Pepsi can rolls back and forth in the aisle across from me. Then see a group of ducks flying overhead as we cross and re-cross the canal at Westerhailles. Can see an aeroplane between the spaces of towerblocks. A girl with loose jeans is revealing the almost entirety of her bottom as she leans over her baby's pram at the bus stop. White clouds accumulating over the prison. Photos under the railway bridge on Gorgie Road advertising train travel are all so faded from the sun that everyone looks pallid and blonde. A boy sits across from me reading a brochure about Hearts and Tynecastle. A wasp bounces twice off the front window. And now on Princes Street they've already begun installing the Christmas lights, they look out of place turned off in the sunshine. The boy reading the Tynecastle brochure leans across to me and asks in stuttering English how he can get to visit the Hibernian stadium. I tell him he had better get off now as the bus is about to turn the other way, I hear him going downstairs and asking the driver the same question. A branch heavy with acorns brushes the window beside. A long line of checked tea towels hanging to dry. The driver says something unintelligible over the speaker. Stop and realise he was pointing out the Royal Blind School. At Cameron Toll bright pink flowers fill a verge. Lots of schoolchildren in green sweatshirts get on, one with a pirates hat. And more from Liberton High in black and white. One shouts "EASY CHEESY!". A leather sofa lies on the pavement outside a fish and chip shop. Coming into fields, light brown and recently cut. Crossing the bypass. Horses and pylons. In Dalkeith a sign reads DANGER, UNSTABLE GRAVEYARD MEMORIALS. The Pepsi can finally dislodges and rolls down the stairs.
A girl at the back says "Imagine Christmas day with four 2-year olds!".

Lady Godiva

Lady Godiva

The statue of Lady Godiva in the centre on Coventry, England. The statue has recantly had a mesh fabris roof installed overhead to creat a better pedestrian environment.

So what is the truth behind the story of Lady Godiva's ride through Coventry? Why would a lady of great standing in the town do such a thing? The legend has been handed down over many years, so the line between fact and fiction has become more than a little blurred.

The earliest surviving source for the legend is the Chronica of Roger of Wendover for the year 1057. He wrote that Godiva pleaded with her husband to relieve the heavy burden of taxes he had imposed on the citizens of Coventry.

Weary of her persistence, Leofric said he would grant her request if she would ride naked through the town.

The rest of the story is not documented at all, but it is said that so great was her compassion for the people of Coventry that Godiva overcame her horror of doing this. She ordered the people to remain indoors with their windows and doors barred. Loosening her long hair to cover her as a cloak, she mounted her waiting horse.

Then she rode through the silent streets unseen by the people, who had obeyed her command because of their respect for her.

'The story tells how Godiva pleaded with her husband to relieve the heavy burden of taxes he had imposed upon the citizens.'
Only one man, called Tom, was unable to resist the temptation to peep at the Countess (hence the term 'Peeping Tom'). He unbarred his window, but before he could satisfy his gaze he was struck blind.

Her ordeal completed, Godiva returned to her husband, who fulfilled his promise to abolish the heavy taxes. According to Ranulf Higden's Polychronicon, Leofric freed the town from all tolls save those on horses. An inquiry made in the reign of Edward I shows that indeed, at that time, no tolls were paid in Coventry except on horses.
