Co-created with the local community, it is a visual tribute to Kirkham, celebrating its rich heritage, natural beauty, and its unwavering spirit.

Inspired by medieval illuminated letters, the design centres around the letter 'K'. The vibrant colours beckon viewers from afar, inviting them to delve deeper into the layers of history and nature.

The work is full of symbolism, referencing the towns industrial past and the Roman Fort that once existed. Magpies and a Robin signify both joy and renewal.

The wild poppy is a heartfelt homage to the people from Kirkham who fought, who sacrificed and who are forever etched in the town's history.

Flax flowers, the spool of cotton and the sail cloth held in the Blue Tits beak, pay tribute to the local textile industry.

The foxglove, commonly found in the area, symbolises strength and resilience. While the oats pay homage to Kirkham's rich agricultural legacy.

The red Roman pillar stands tall acting as the backbone of the mural, a reminder of the ancient civilizations that once tread this land. Its inclusion serves as a bridge between the past and the present.
