Council Condoned Graffiti
Rochdale Council encouraged Graffiti in the past, maybe it was allowed purely because the subways near what is now Tesco’s on Manchester Road, were soon to be demolished.
If anybody can remember back to the 80s, we would love to know how this came about. Let us know what you think about it, many today regard it as a high art form, but in contrast many older people will just see vandalism. We have a well known local artist that is now regarded as “The First” Graffiti artist by enthusiasts around the world. Walter Kershaw still paints here in Littleborough when he is not jetting off around the world to carry out commissioned work.
