Ridgeway Mural


Saturday I persuaded my wife to take a walk along the Ridgeway near where I work to visit a mural I have wanted to see for a while. The mural is in a tunnel that runs under the A34 which you can see below and not the sort of thing I would expect to see. I first came across it a year or so ago on a website I subscribe to and ever since have want to to visit. The normal thing I would expect to see in a tunnel like this is Tagged Graffiti of the worst kind



The photo below is a stitch photo of the panels an you should get a better idea if you click on it and enlarge it. The stitch is not perfect but will give an idea as to what your seeing. So for the next few weeks I'll post each on of the panels and give the story what I think it shows.

  4. That looks like a very interesting mural. Look forward to hear more about it especially the reason for placing it in an obscure tunnel but then maybe it is best appreciated by the people who walk the Ridgeway.

  8. From the one shot, it would appear a great deal of thought went into the broader work.

  11. How interesting! I used to live not far from the Ridegeway and the A34 but I don't know where this tunnel and its mural treasure is.

    1. Depends when you lived there. The A34 was widened on Gore Hill sometime in the 1970's so the tunnel would have gone in then. If you lookat Tuesdays blog it might give you an Idea where about's it is. On the far side of the tunnel you can turn left down to Chilton or right over to East Ilsley & Compton
