Abstract Mural


Type Other

     Combination of circles and wheel shapes.
     This mural seems to have a mixed history. There appears to be some connection to Norwich Union Assurance from1976, but Droitwich Town Council and Wychavon District Council have said that Norwich Union did not purchase the site until 1993. In 1976 the three murals cost £10,000. On 21 October the main building contractors, David Charles Group, financially collapsed. Spicers of Worcester were contracted to complete the job.
