The Colinton Tunnel - preserving history and heritage

It’s started!   32 metres of brilliantly illustrated poetry.  Simply stunning!

There's also Colinton Primary's brilliant work - currently being varnished ready to install

This exciting major project is creating a stunning mural in a Victorian railway tunnel, in order to preserve local history and make people smile.

  It is turning a dark and slightly forbidding tunnel into a safe and welcoming home for Scotland's largest historical mural, celebrating the industrial, social, artistic and literary history of our community.

Here are the first four images, at the Slateford end.  Each is 8 metres long and 6 metres high.  Wow!
