Jubilee Gardens
These gardens on the site of the Festival of Britain 1951 were opened by Her Majesty the Queen on 19th June 1977 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of her reign.

In the photo you can see two plaques: the one sticking out of the wall is in Braille. You can also see a corner of our fair city which seems to have fallen on hard times since the regal visit 30-odd years ago.

2013: If this memorial still exists in situ it is well hidden behind service items. Jubilee Gardens had a much-needed facelift for the 2012 Jubolympics and although this wall still exists, its surroundings are cleaned up and a number of utility-type boxes and huts now stand in front of it.
