WOKINGHAM TOWN MOSAICS REVEALED
Wokingham Market Square opens with historical mosaics
In the newly re-built Market Square, Wokingham Town Council has worked with local historians to select suggested events, individuals and sites that could be reflected in a set of mosaics, set into the ground. The first four mosaics are now in place and seven more are planned to appear in the next year.
'more arts.' is delighted to have sponsored one of the mosaics, a red lion portrait, which is sited outside the Red Lion pub in the Market Square. The Red Lion is one of the oldest buildings in the town, with parts dating back to the 15th century.
All the mosaics were made by Rosalind Wates from marble,, using natural colours to complement the traditional nature of the Town centre buildings.
You can learn more about the mosaics from a handy booklet available from the Wokingham Information Centre at the Town Hall or by downloading the Wokingham Town History App from the iOS App Store or Android Google Play. Search for 'Wokingham Town History'.
