Running Man Mural: Panels 9-12

A follow-up to my post from 29th June 2015 featuring Panals 1 -4 of the Running Man Mural and the post of 6th July 2016 featuring Panals 5-6. The 16 panel mural was the work of the group Friends of Heaton Chapel Station and produced with support from the local community. The artwork was designed by local artist Karen Allerton with photographs and historic information supplied by Phil Rowbotham ©.

Panel 9 was designed with pupils at Broadstone Hall Primary School - Heaton Chapel.

Panel 10 was sponsored by Prontaprint and designed with pupils at St Thomas' CE Primary School - Heaton Chapel.

Panel 11 was sponsored by Hugh Joseph McCarthy Solicitors.

Panel 12 was sponsored by Bramley Carpets and features the war memorial and the poem:
Ode of Remembrance

They went with songs to the battle,
they were young.
Straight of limb,
true of eyes,
steady and aglow.
They were staunch to
the end against odds
They fell with their faces
to the foe.
They shall not grow old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the
down of
the sun
and in the morning,
we will remember them.

  1. I can feel the urgency of this running man to get to work on time! Excellent murals. Have a great day.

  2. And they keep running, neat! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. I love that the running man wears a bowler hat. He's running through history as well as running to catch his train. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
