Luton Arches brightened up by stunning new art mural

A neglected corner of Chatham has been given an artistic overhaul to delight thousands of passersby on the A2.

Network Rail joined forces with community group Arches Local and artist Lionel Stanhope to create a unique art mural on the bare walls of local railway landmark the Luton Arches.

The mural features another lost local landmark, the Driver Fountain that once stood on the spot, and the HMS Victory warship, which was built nearby at Chatham Dockyard.

The Arches ‘Chatham’ Neighbourhood Forum (ACNF) is a group made up of local residents and business owners from our community that together are preparing our Neighbourhood Plan to positively shape the future of our designated area within Central Chatham. Click here for our boundary: 

We’ve created this survey as a way of giving the community inside and outside of the ACNF an opportunity to feed into the process in a noncommittal fashion.
