Interesting art at Atherton

February 14, 2010

If you’ve got on or off at Atherton recently you can’t fail to have noticed the colourful murals which adorn the walls of the stairway down to the platform. They’re the result of a joint project by local schools, the Turnpike Gallery, Wigan Borough Council and a professional artist.
There’s a great little 5-minute video of the opening ceremony here on YouTube.
We have ambitions to decorate Walkden station too, but the fact the station is unmanned for most of the day poses extra issues we’ve not worked around yet.
