Multi storey car park, Fletton Quays in Peterborough
The west wall of this car park features a large mural which was made by celebrated sculptor Arthur Ayres for Mitchell Engineering Limited in the mid-1950s. It was removed from the end of the original building and put into storage for several years before being refurbished and built into the car park wall. It can be seen in the distance in this photo in its original position a few hundred yards away Link. Ayres carried out work on many major buildings in London, including Westminster Abbey. This Peterborough work was one of his largest, taking three years to carve in situ onto 51 panels of Portland stone.
