Wellingborough Town Centre Mosaics

Published Monday, 05 August 2019

Work will start this week to repair the ‘five wells’ mosaic at the bottom of Market Street in Wellingborough Town Centre.

The mosaic represents significant aspects of the borough’s history and depicts the spring waters that were first captured by medieval settlers and helped the town to prosper. Although the town had lots of wells, the five featured on the mosaic are Red Well, Whyte Well, Burymoor Well, Stan Well and Rising Sun Well.

Contractors will cordon off the area and will begin to repair the mosaics on Tuesday, subject to favourable weather, and anticipate that work will take approximately one week to complete.

Removable bollards have been installed place to stop delivery vehicles driving over the mosaics and help prevent future damage.
