The Gardens of Wood Street

Eleanor Hill

Wood Street Station, beneath the bridge

The Gardens of Wood Street, is a new mural and lighting design, for the area beneath the railway bridge at Wood Street Station.

Following in the tradition of mural-making in London, the new design will be shaped by residents and feature local narratives and images as a representation of Walthamstow’s community and character. 

Residents will be invited to participate by contributing diary entries and photographs that evoke time spent in the area's many community gardens, parks and woodlands. This collection of stories and images will be interpreted to create a digitally produced illustration that is print transferred onto a series of custom shaped enamel panels to be installed beneath the bridge.

To participate visit www.gardensofwoodstreet.com. Entries close Sunday 12 July 2020.
