A visitor to the Museum on Saturday announced that there was anew piece of Banksy graffiti art in Lyme Regis! It didn’t take long to find out that it is a tasteful picture of an origami wading bird with fish in beak and is located by the river where Coombe Street meets Mill Green. A picture is given below but it really requires a visit to see it in situ.
Here we have an interesting conundrum. We celebrate Lyme’s connection to art both old and new but does graffiti art fit into a conservation area? If you have any thoughts then please comment below.
