Embankment

Users of the joint cycleway/footpath that leads from 'the bends' on Stratford Road Stratford sub Castle to Five Rivers Leisure Centre will pass to the east of this embankment. 

 

It occupies land between the River Avon on the west side and allotments and housing on the eastern side.

This is public land: there are several walking paths around and over the embankment, with access to the river bank in places.

This area was at one-time a 20th century landfill site but there is no longer any evidence of its former use other than its height above the surrounding landscape.

The embankment was the subject of one of the questions in a Local History Photo Quiz.
