Hebburn Metro Station (Platform 1)

  • Description

    "The panels in the station shelter are 'A High Place Beside The Water' created by local photographer Karen Atkinson, with the help of the Jarrow and Hebburn Local History Society, to mark the refurbishment of the busy suburban station in October 2014. The 15 panels spanning Hebburn’s two platforms throw new light on familiar and little-known aspects of the town’s history, including the famous HMS Kelly story and the Reyrolle plant. Karen’s work succeeds an earlier community artwork by Lucy Crow and has been printed and installed within new display cases creating the opportunity for new works to be commissioned every few years in future. http://www.nexus.org.uk/news/item/new-art-step-back-time-hebburn-metro-station Detail of the stunning images on display can be seen on the artist's website http://www.photoboxgallery.com/karenatkinson/collection?album_id=2792097583" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2015.
