I must admit there’s just something about murals and, I think you’ll agree, these ones in Borth are spectacular!
These cottages stand opposite each other on the main street in the seaside village of Borth on the coast of Ceredigion, here in Wales. As I mentioned in my previous post, Borth and the surrounding area were used as filming locations for the TV crime series Hinterland, but these murals show a brighter side to the place.
Apparently, this house was originally built by a sea-captain from Borth. The artist couldn’t find a picture of the sea-captain, so he used the current occupier as a model for the pirate in the mural!
The murals are by Marvellous Murals. Originally from London, Dean of Marvellous Murals moved to Borth with his family a couple of years ago. When he isn’t creating marvellous murals, Deal helps his wife run Borth Wild Animal Kingdom (somewhere else I promise to visit and, of course, write about).
Have you seen any marvellous murials whilst out and about?
