Next stop Inkberrow
The village without a station now has its own railway poster!

Local artist John Harris, like many of us, has always admired the style of the old railway posters and decided to try his hand at creating one for his home village of Inkberrow.
Big, bold and colourful, his design includes many local landmarks:
St Peter’s church flying the flag of St George; The Old Bull of BBC radio’s ‘Archers’ fame, The Bull’s Head at the top of the pretty Village Green with its rival claim: ‘Inkberrow’s top pub’. There’s the Millennium Green with its moat; the distant Malverns, an old brick barn. Horse riders and dog walkers, school kids and sheep. A whole summer scene topped with wheeling swifts in the sunshine.
A problem: what sort of wording below – a motto to encapsulate the village…? Try to think of something yourself, then go see the first Inkberrow Railway Poster now on display in The Old Bull.
A specialist art printer has made a great job of producing high quality limited edition posters for us all to enjoy.
If you can wait until the end of August, you could visit John’s Open Studio event, see the poster and see the artist at work. Bring along your suggested motto!
