At Morrison’s in Whitefield Steve des Landes has created two aluminum panels that represent the rich industrial and social heritage of the area.

The first panel tells the story of the Besses o’ th’ Barn Band, one of the oldest brass bands in the world who still rehearse on Moss Lane in Whitefield. The band is framed by past industrial buildings and the All Saints church at Stand which was designed by a young Charles Barry who went on to design the Palace of Westminster.

The second panel depicts the washer women of the now demolished Lilly Hill Steam Laundry as well as tradesman, masons and blacksmiths from Whitefield, some of which still have family in the area.
