This weekend the London Mural Preservation Society is leading a walk around Deptford, Surrey Quays and New Cross to look at some of the area's murals and find out more about them.
The free walk begins at Canada Water station (Jubilee and London Overground) – meet at the top of the escalators – at 1pm on Saturday 6th August, finishing at around 4pm in Deptford with a visit to the pub. The walk includes the mural in Surrey Quays shopping centre which is featured on the blog here - and which I never knew existed (probably since I usually do my best to avoid the shopping centre...)
More information about the walk and also the society here.
Meanwhile read about mural-related shenanigans over on Crosswhatfields blog, where one of Deptford's most famous murals is under threat.
