BBC report on the restoration of Fred Millett's murals at St Crispin's School, Wokingham

Thanks to the efforts of the present head teacher and school governor, Robin Cops, two of the three murals of the seasons by Fred Millett have been recovered at St Crispin's School, Wokingham, after being concealed under thick gloss paint for 40 years. Click on the link to watch a TV report celebrating the recovery with comments by pupils and the daughters of Oliver Cox, architect who also produced  murals for the school including one shown here.

Fred Millett also painted a mural at Morley College in 1950 with Brian Probyn. The College knows nothing about this mural and we think it has been painted over too. Such a pity.
