Hamtun Street Mural

mural colourIn Hamtun Street, just a few minutes walk from Tudor House and Garden, there’s an eye-catching and fascinating mural depicting Southampton’s history.

Charting Southampton’s history from Roman times to the 20th century, the mural includes reference to the maritime and aeronautical achievements for which the city is justifiably proud.

Stored out of the public gaze for 20 years, the 19 metre long, three metre high concrete and glass mural has recently been repaired, cleaned and re-installed in Hamtun Street.

The mural was created by influential ceramic artists Henry and Joyce Collins in 1978 to decorate the facade of a Sainsbury’s superstore in the Lordshill area of Southampton. See the gallery of photographs below for a picture of mural in its original position.

Collins and Pallot, a husband and wife team of artists from Colchester, Essex, made public art for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and in subsequent years completed many murals on public and commercial buildings.

The mural was removed in 1990 to make way for the redevelopment of the store and donated to Southampton City Council. It was restored in 2010 by ceramic artist, Oliver Budd, following a grant from Heritage Lottery Fund.
