Youngsters spray-paint station's colourful history

THE railway station underpass was given an eye-catching renovation last week in the form of a community art project.

Working in collaboration with local artist Graham Upton, seven young people planned and produced the spray-painted piece.

It maps the history of rail travel in Tonbridge and also features some of the town’s most beloved landmarks.

Both sides of the tunnel, which connects Platform 3 to the car park, were filled over the course of last week [April 3-7].

Esther Leigh-Hollands, a Kent County Council youth worker who helped organise the event, said: “The young people loved being involved in a community art project that has links to their lives. It’s an amazing piece of art with historical links to the station and Tonbridge.”
