The Life of the River Gipping

Artathon 4 of 47: The Life of the River Gipping

The Life of the River Gipping

The ‘The Life of the River Gipping‘ mural was painted on a wall along the river path below the Old Cattle market in 2003 by school kids under the tutelage of a local artist. It contained a dozen or so scenes with a maritime thread. The mural has since been painted over several times by various street art projects (a minor point that the Artathon brochure fails to mention).
