Mitzi Cunliffe Mural
Mitzi Cunliffe Mural
The large relief on the wall of the Heaton Park Reservoir Pumping Station.

The mural was commissioned for the Manchester Corporation Waterworks; it is dated MCMLV (1955- contemporary with the construction of the pumping station) and signed by sculptress Mitzi Cunliffe. The relief, which takes the full width of the wall, is a highly stylised depiction of the bringing of water from Haweswater to Manchester with contemporary figures supporting the pipeline. The bringing of water to Manchester from a new reservoir at Haweswater was a major undertaking and the mural was designed to commemorate those who constructed it as well as the origin and course of the aqueduct. The relief uses Westmorland greenstone from Broughton Moor.
