The Olympic mosaic at Moulton ANL-140326-161319001

Have you spotted the London Olympics mosaics in five towns and villages across South Holland?

The artwork commemorates the torch passing through the district in the run-up to the 2012 Games, when South Holland District Council commissioned local artist Fiona Gurney to work with University Academy Holbeach to design and make the five mosaics. Spalding’s mosaic in Sheepmarket depicts tulips, Moulton’s windmill is on the artwork in front of the community centre in Broad Lane (pictured above), Whaplode’s is by St Mary’s Church entrance and has representations of the village’s sculptures, ploughed fields are on the Holbeach mosaic in Church Street and Long Sutton’s version – at the junction of Wisbech Road and Bridge Road – features the church’s famous spire
