Park Hill flats has been receiving much media attention recently, in the build up to the first phase of its regeneration by Urban Splash being completed this October. Less attention has been given to the other two thirds of the Park Hill estate, one block of which is uninhabited. So it was with some pleasure that we noticed recently the new faces visible in some of the boarded up windows. The work of local artist Gary Hindley, these lovingly rendered portraits represent characters from Park Hill's community, past and present, including long-serving caretaker Grenville Squires.
