People from across the community of Peasedown St John, near Bath, have been involved in a unique community art project. They made mosaic pigeons that were placed around the village on the facades of houses and businesses. The public artist, Andrew Bolton, who led the project, made two murals of large figures releasing the birds.
The project is an acknowledgement of Peasedown's position at the centre of the former Somerset coalfield. There has been a long association between coal mining and racing pigeons.
