RedPat, on her blog, Occasional Toronto, often features colourful murals from around her area. We have one in Shipley too, though it is past its prime. It's on the wall of the carpark belonging to Shipley Baptist Church (where I think part of the old church once stood before being demolished). The jigsaw-like mural incorporates several Christian symbols and I assume it was probably painted by a church youth group or similar. It's nicely colourful even now, and certainly brightens up what would otherwise be a very dull wall. In the background you can see Shipley's modernist clock tower, just poking its head into the scene.
