The Rivers Run Through

"The Rivers Run Through" is an artwork designed by young people working with Stockport Youth Offending Service and local artist Karen Allerton.

Part of a Stockport Art Trail it is a collaboration between Stockport's Youth Offending Service, Public Health and Sustrans.

The mural was installed recently on the wall below the M60 motorway opposite the confluence of the rivers Goyt and Tame to form the Mersey.

It is fixed in front of the wall rather than attached directed to the wall like a conventional mural which may make it less of a target for taggers.

A contribution to Monday Murals and Blue Monday.
