Shrewsbury's Mini Murals Trail

This summer Shrewsbury's artists have been out in force decorating the town centre's Openreach Boxes with colourful mini murals.

To date 13 boxes have been painted, each illustrating animals from across the globe inspired by life in Shrewsbury and our town's favourite son Charles Darwin. Amongst others, you can find Wyle Cop's Lion Hotel and Snooty Fox Jewellers brought to life, an hommage to Shrewsbury's dog walkers on St John's Hill and an Enlightened Orangutan hidden on Castle Gates - all waiting to be discovered!

Explore our interactive map and plan your trail around all 13 of Shrewsbury's mini murals. Please be aware the 14th box in the Square is currently unavailable.
