Lamppost Artworks in Stockport :: SJ8889
In 2014 as part of the Stockport Arts Trail, an independent group of young people, working towards an Arts Award Qualification at Stockport Central Library, created the images for one face of the artworks, located on lampposts in and around Edgeley. Historic photographs from the libraries archives are on the other face, giving people an idea of how the area looked in times gone by.

A new set of lamppost artworks were set up in 2015 as part of a second Arts Trail LinkExternal link celebrating the secret history of silk in Heaton Norris.

Other decorated lamppost have appeared since in other parts of Stockport but documentation is hard to locate.
