Restoring a Millfield gem
Peterborough Presents worked with the amazing local community and a team of incredible artists to restore the Link Road mural. The colour was restored, returning the Link Road mural back to its original glory in summer 2021. Artists involved were Amanda Rigby, Jason Duckmanton, Katie Scott, Nathan Murdoch (Street Arts Hire), Stuart Payn, and Tony Nero. They undertook an epic job of bringing this well-loved mural back to life.
The Link Road mural restoration also wouldn’t have been possible without a brilliant team of community stakeholders: Community First (Peterborough), The Allama Iqbal Centre, PTL Lettings, Friends of Roger Brooks, and Peterborough City Archives.
The mural was also at the heart of our Millfield Link project. It represents a celebration of the area. Read on to find out about the history of the mural and learn about its restoration.
