The Charter Mural

Gerald Rickards
21st Century

Painting of key buildings and places in Wigan.

Gerald Rickards was one of Wigan’s most distinctive and best-loved artists. Following his retirement as Head of Art at UpHolland Grammar School (now Winstanley College), Gerald painted many of the borough’s buildings and townscapes in an instantly recognisable style.

The Charter Mural includes the canal, Mesnes Park bandstand and the Town Hall.
