Restore Knaresborough's famous Trompe l'Oeil

The Town Windows are a collection of public art works illustrating characters and events from the town’s long and rich history. They use the technique of trompe l’oeil - a painting style that sets out to ‘fool the eye’ into seeing a painted picture as something real.
Knaresborough has dozens of blank windows in our older buildings. They are a feature of Georgian buildings, which were blocked to avoid window tax or incorporated in the building’s design to provide symmetry.
“Town Windows” have been in place all year round and have become a unique feature of our streetscape.
However, many are in need of extensive repair and need to be worked on as a matter of urgency.
Your donation can help us achieve this.
