The Gainsborough line which runs from Marks Tey to Sudbury has had a recent addition to brighten up Sudbury Station. Artist Joanna Tidey has produced two amazing murals each side of the end of the shelter, which have added colour and life to the station, which sees a train service each hour.
The art work, which features cows grazing in a butter cup filled meadow, and the famous Chappel viaduct, was designed by Joanna and painted over a few days. Joanna had great feedback from passengers travelling on the line, and children visiting the station loved watching her paint. Joanna is no stranger to the art trail along the railway lines; another of her murals which features ships and sea is proudly displayed on the Mayflower line, which runs to Harwich.
This work is part of the wider art project to brighten up Essex branch line stations.
