A POPULAR mural has re-appeared in Bracknell again after making way for the town’s redevelopment several years ago.

William Mitchell’s artwork has a new home on the side of Braccan Walk Car Park after originally being placed above Mothercare at Charles Square.

A planning application to re-introduce the mural to the town centre was approved in February and now it has finally been made available for public viewing again.

This sparked excitement from locals happy to see a former staple of the old town centre return to Bracknell.

One commented: “[I’m] Delighted with its new location.

“It is more visible as we are higher up on the road and it looks great in one long strip which it didn't do before as it went around the corner of the building.”

Another added: “It’s amazing to see our Bracknell history back on display again.”

The mural, which is 30 metres-long and which was commissioned in 1974 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Bracknell becoming a new town, was taken down before the old town was demolished to make way for The Lexicon.

It depicts the history of the town and its surroundings, including references to Roman history, incursions to the Danes and Bracknell’s royal links, according to a report from the BBC.

Bosses at Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) have been looking for a new home for the mural for the past two years.

Bracknell News:

Speaking to the News at the start of the year, councillor Marc Brunel-Walker said Bracknell Regeneration Partnership was obliged to find a new space for the mural as part of the redevelopment process.

All costs associated with the installation are being met by the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, too.
