This large town centre mosaic measures 9m x 5m and was commissioned by the London Borough of Sutton to celebrate the boroughs heritage.

Designed by Rob Turner and made by Rob and Gary in a living room in 1983, the mosaic shows many aspects of Sutton's heritage in 19 black and white panels. The centrepiece is the depiction of Henry VIII's palace at Nonesuch. Other panels depict armorial bearers from the old local families, industrial and architectural heritage.

The mosaic is made from vitreous ceramic tesserae and can be seen in the town square in Sutton.
