Long Description:
Every day thousands of cars drive past this newly rebuilt bus stop shelter, not realising there is a brightly coloured mural inside. All transport links are forced through this narrow gap; river, roads, railway line and utilities.

Mural shows fauna and flora living on and under Windermere lake's surface. Windermere lake is 1.5 km north. Leven river that drains Windermere lake, is a few metres behind bus shelter.

Freshwater newts, crested and plain, mallard duck, rushes, water boatmen insects, snails, eels, toads.
