Unique new images of two historic queens will flank pedestrians as they walk into Newcastle.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council is retiling the town centre subway which emerges by Queens Gardens with the eye-catching design to mark the Borough’s 850th anniversary.

Images of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II will be interwoven with the design marking the Borough’s special anniversary.

Queens Gardens already has a statue of Queen Victoria, first unveiled in the town in 1903, and it’s hoped that will soon be joined by a statue of Queen Elizabeth, designed and sculpted by renowned local artist Andy Edwards.

The council’s wider programme of subway art includes the whole of Grosvenor Roundabout; Ryecroft subway, which focuses on circus; and Knutton Lane subway which reflects the history of Newcastle and Britain in Bloom.

Once Queens Gardens is complete, the next upgrade will be the large subway at Pool Dam, where a gallery style design will include photographs from The Brampton archive.
