Updated 11:51am Friday 4th April 2014 in News
COLOURFUL art created by students from Kendal College have been unveiled at Windermere railway station.
Seven new panels depicting scenes including Lakeland landscapes and wildlife have been added to art displayed on the platform.
Jim Trotman, Lakes Line Community Rail Partnership officer, said: “Everybody has loved them and they brightens up the platform. It gives people something to look at.”
The Community Rail Partnership worked with the Lake District National Park Authority to deliver the project with art and design students aged between 16 and 18 from Kendal.
About 25 students created pieces under the direction of lecturer Mike Howard for the installation – with seven chosen to feature alongside eight panels launched last July.
