We aim to bring some public art to the centre of Coulsdon. The public art will be small finials representing the history of Coulsdon from 600AD to today. This will make the town centre more interesting and create a local history trail especially for local children. We consulted residents and traders to see what they think and gain their support. The Finials include Cuthread the Saxon warrior who the town is named after, The Surrey Iron Railway Britain's first public railway, Logie Baird who transmitted the first TV picture to New Your from Coulsdon, Emmeline Pankhurst who spoke at the local parish hall in 1911, The Roman snail left on our Downs during the Roman invasion.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project will make Coulsdon Town more interesting not only with public art. but with purpose of conveying the amazing history of the area. To what is often deemed to be an outer London Suburb. This will help bring people back to the town centre after covid. It will be a lasting history trail for the local children now and the future.
Steps to get it done:
It is important that we bring people back to our town centres. We believe this project will not only do this but also help people to value our town centre its history and its assets.
