Here's a short film we made of the 90m wall finished this week. 🎥 Film by Matthew Watkins

The basin is where Harker barges delivered oil for Shell Mex until the 1960's, the only boats to travel sea, river and canal. Now a place of stillness where sand martins and swans reside. Working with Worcestershire Wildlife Trust the hope is that the mural will provide spatial references and visual clues to help direct more Sand Martins to the nest pipes inside the wall.
