A local arts project took a majestic and fruitful turn into The Gold Belt. Situated underneath the Vicarage Road bridge, this innovative piece of local art glorifies the mining past of the town. The belt represents the coal miner's leather belt and thus displays the town's deep connection with mining. The project was a result of the effort of the local artist, Alisha Miller, Warwickshire County Council and Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and was installed in 2003, with financial aid from the Countryside Agency and the local authorities. A shining piece of public artwork that engulfs the area's history.
