The London Mural Preservation Society does much good work, restoring fading murals and leading guided walks around some of our city’s painted treasures. They’ve pointed us towards an ongoing campaign to save this towering mural on Somerleyton Road, Brixton. Nuclear Dawn was painted in 1981 by Dale McCrea and Brian Barnes. Over 30 years on, it’s not only in need of some care and attention, but might also be obscured by a new development due to begin construction in front of the mural later this year.
The London Mural Preservation Society has started a petition to show that there is strong community support for restoring and maintaining the mural in all its glory. If you’d like to add your name to the cause, sign up here.
