Roy Castle mural in Sale: pic Darren Marsden

Many people may have missed the Roy Castle mural which can be seen above the old Argos store on School Road in Sale, it is the first time we have seen this amazing art work.

We do not yet know who did this work or why, however we know that the old Argos store has been bought by a mystery buyer and so could mean (guessing) the new store could sell musical instruments

Roy Castle sadly died from lung cancer in 1994, he claimed that he got the cancer through passive smoking, Castle starred in a few films and TV series, he got a part in Carry On Khyber, he also presented Record Breakers in 1972, this series lasted two decades,

He was a musician having recorded three albums in just over a decade and of course played the trumpet very well.

On December 1992 Castle was awarded an OBE.
