Canalside Graffiti


This section of towpath is by the bend in the canal where it passes by Automasters before going under the M67.

The walls are covered in graffiti.

I'll show you more around here on March 1st when the CDPB theme will be Graffiti/Street Art. Over 130 blogs have already signed up to participate.

It looks like a perfect spot for graffiti "artists."

It really does look like the perfect place for some artists to take their time and create their masterpiece... i'm not sure what's on the other side of that brick wall, but it looks like they don't want anyone climbing over with that barbed wire!

I have been photographing graffiti for a while now. Will be good to post some for the theme day. Some is artistic, but some is just plain ugly and costs lots to remove.

Gerald if you have managed to find some artistic street art in Hyde... I take my hat off to you. Mostly I see trashed walls and buildings... most of these morons would not know one end of a paint brush from the other.

Goodness, Gerald - someone has written your blog address on the surface of the towpath!

That is so sad when the graffitti vandals take over..I used to live near the grand union canal in the UK, ..but where we were there were not so many walls there for them to leave their marks on.
