Fri 21 August 2015, 11:03 am

Works of art installed across Barking this summer are part of the Creekmouth Heritage Project to celebrate the history of the area.

The scheme was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Transport for London and involved the installation of three pieces of art outside the Rivergate Centre on River Road, at Barking Riverside and on Farr Avenue. 

The charity Living Streets was involved with the initial stages of the project, organising a series of walks to show people the work being done.
