A walrus welcome to Forest Hill: successful Crowdfunding

Thanks to your generous donation, the project will now become a reality ūüöÄ
In just 75 hours, the SE23 community donated over £2,500 - an astonishing success! 

We raised a slight excess, which will be used as contingency for the project, with any remaining funds donated to the Forest Hill Society (a local non-profit organisation).

Stay tuned to for further updates on the progress of this project.


Details of the project
Lionel Stanhope's murals have become a popular hallmark of South London, and with your help, Forest Hill is getting in on the action.

The Forest Hill mural design features a nod to the walrus mascot of our local treasure, the Horniman Musuem. 

The design and colour was decided by a poll of local residents on, after a call for submissions from local artists. 

In order to distinguish Forest Hill’s mural from the blue and yellow colour scheme of Brockley’s design, Lionel will tweak the yellow colour (shown in the mock-up) to a London Overground orange.   

The site for this mural will be Waldram Crescent (AKA South Circular) under the railway bridge, on the eastern side as indicated here:
