Pupils of Oriel High School and Maidenbower Junior School have designed and painted a mural, which has been displayed next to the newly extended pedestrian tunnel linking Furnace Green and Maidenbower. m91_2258

m91_2258 Oriel was approached by the developer Volker Fitzpatrick with the idea and inspired by Crawley links with Gatwick Airport and transport as well as their chosen artist David Hockney, pupils worked on different parts of the mural.

When the work to the tunnel extension has been completed the aim is to move the artwork inside the tunnel to be a permanent fixture.
