Show pride in our area to all those who drive through - help fund a Forest Hill mural by renowned local artist Lionel Stanhope

by SE23.life in Forest Hill, England, United Kingdom

Lionel Stanhope's murals have become a popular hallmark of South London, and with your help, Forest Hill is getting in on the action.


The Forest Hill mural design features a nod to the walrus mascot of our local treasure, the Horniman Musuem. 

The design and colour was decided by a poll of local residents on SE23.life, after a call for submissions from local artists. 

In order to distinguish Forest Hill’s mural from the blue and yellow colour scheme of Brockley’s design, Lionel will tweak the yellow colour (shown in the mock-up) to a London Overground orange.   


The site for this mural will be Waldram Crescent (AKA South Circular) under the railway bridge, on the eastern side as indicated here:


We have agreement in principle from Network Rail, who own the underpass. The artist has worked with them on similar projects around South East London. The Horniman Museum have been supportive of our use of the walrus mascot. 


Lionel plans to start work in March if our crowdfunder is successful.

We really appreciate your support in this local project.
