A young artist’s mural has brightened up a rebuilt culvert as one of the final stages of the Todmorden flood alleviation scheme.

Artwork by Sophie Mitchell, a former student at Todmorden High School, was selected by the Environment Agency (EA) and, after being transformed into a large mural by Water Street Gallery’s Mike Holcroft, has been erected above the rebuilt market hall culvert.

Alan Whittaker, EA communications manager, said the EA and its contractors Volker Stevin wanted to leave a legacy in the town of the community’s engagement with the flood defence work.
