Work begins on United Service Transport Mosaic

Work has begun on the restoration of the United Service Transport Company mosaic in Southfields.


The 43-feet long green and gold sign dates from the 1920s and marks the hub of the ‘United Service Transport Company Ltd’, one of the first Passenger Transport companies in the UK. For nearly 50 years, ‘United Green’ coaches served day trippers from across London for days out to the seaside, historic towns and racing meets. The sign is a rare and attractive piece 1920s industrial heritage which had been in very poor condition and at risk of total loss.

Along with local residents’ association Southfields Grid Residents’ Association, HR Owen who own the site, generous local donors, the Sutton Byre Charitable Trust and the Jones Day Foundation, HOLT raised the funds to restore the mosaic. Work has now begun by specialist conservators London Stone Conservation.

Our Proud Places programme will be engaging local young people in the project.
