New mural in the old railway tunnel behind Arnot Hill Park

Alert message sent 27/09/2019 16:39:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire


An old railway tunnel has been brought back to life telling the story and history of Arnold.

The tunnel, which is located behind Arnot Hill Park, Arnold, on what was once a railway track, has been given a new design as part of celebrations of the centenary of Arnot Hill Park.

The mural, which completely covers the tunnel, was created by participants of the City Arts Express Yourself project, which supports young people’s emotional health, wellbeing and resilience through creative activities. Members of the public also took part in painting the mural as part of the park's centenary celebration event in July.

The design takes inspiration from local history, wildlife and iconic features of Arnot Hill Park, including paintings of brass bands, picnics, lawn bowls, birds, ducks and more.

It took 12 weeks, 11 volunteers and around 100 members of the public to complete the design.
