Charlton station mural retouched


South London artist Lionel Stanhope recently retouched the Charlton station mural that he created in 2020.

After usual wear and tear on a busy road had left the artwork damaged in places, the Charlton Athletic Museum, who commissioned and funded the design to commemorate 100 years of The Valley, paid for Stanhope to return and give the now-iconic image a refresh.

The mural is also a memorial to Charlton superfan Seb Lewis, who sadly died just as it was completed in March 2020.

Whilst working, the artist, who has produced similar work all over south-east London and Kent, got frequent comments from locals glad to see that the wall was being brought back close to its original state. 

Given that some of the brickwork is missing and needs filling, the Museum and Stanhope are looking at a full refurbishment next summer, funds permitting. The Museum's trustees would love to hear from any fans or local community groups able to help fund the approximate £2,000 cost of a full repaint and repair.
