While I have been working in isolation over a hot computer, in the real world the Portobello Banners featuring images that I created, in collaboration with Faceless and members of the Portobello community, have been installed. Manygates Lane connects the Visitor Centre and ruins of Sandal Castle with one of the major roads into Wakefield.

If you want to find out more history, head on up to Wakefield Museum. There’s a large scale comic strip (Ahem…) that explains a bit about what might have happened 550 Years ago at the bloody battle where Portobello now stands. But do hurry, because the exhibition comes to an end on January 29th 2011.
