The Denton Mural again (right hand side)

Continuing from last Monday's post of the left hand side of the Denton Mural, here now are the right hand sections. Do remember to click on the images to see them large-size.

The mural was painted on the wall of Denton Pool facing Victoria Park in 2000. It was conceived by David Vaughn and commissoned by the Denton Town Twinning Association. It serves to commemorate both the second millenniumm and the continuing friendship between the people of Denton and Montigny le Brettoneux.

Although I don't know what these scenes represent I do recognise a couple of local landmarks. Some I think are connected to town's hatting industry and others may reflect something of the town's French twin.

Next week I'll show you how the whole mural looks.

This is a contribution to Monday Murals at Oakland Daily Photo.


  1. Like it Gerald. What is the black and white timber building?- is that local- looks very Cheshire like.

  2. There is so much to see on this one! I am enjoying the chance to see it through your camera!

  3. The black and white building is St Lawrence's Church. I was there again this morning. The crocuses are gone but the other flowerbeds nearby are quite colourful.

  4. there is really a lot to see and enjoy with this mural.

  5. I love the atmosphere of this one!

  6. Lots of references to French art here too. An additional appreciation for your twin town. The beach and water scenes are perfect for a town pool. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.
