Mill Road Watercolours

Mark Skipper

Mark Skipper is a Coleridge resident, software engineer and member of the Cambridge Urban Sketchers. Over 2021 he completed watercolour sketches of the entire of Mill Road which you can view in the two flip books below. One for the north side and one for the south side.

Marks says about the project:

During the pandemic while I was working from home in Coleridge, I sketched all of Mill road and Brookfields from Petersfield to Antwerp House and from The Brook to Donkey’s Common, in two sketchbooks. Various aspects of that period are visible in the sketches, for example, the red and white barriers that were placed in the road to make pavements wider (at some point during my project these were removed) and the workmen putting renovated signage up on The Earl Of Beaconsfield.
