Sped up, slowed down, turned round and round - today’s Sunday soundscape is recorded walking along Crowden weir. Enjoy listening to the sound of the gushing fast flowing stream as Clare Savory turns in circles, allowing the water to move all around us. (Best listened wearing headphones!) The week’s conversations about adopting a sense of play with the children in the brook; to the issues around safety in encouraging more women to enjoy walking the park have been rumbling around Clare’s mind. Something she ponders over, with the wise words of Dr Kerri Andrew’s book ‘Wanderers: The History of Women Walking’ to hand. The Longdendale Tales project was supported by Glossop Creates as part of their Pairings programme, matched with Matt Ross at the Peak District National Park’s Longdendale Environmental Centre in Tintwistle. Special thanks to Holly Close (assistant producer), Harry Heart (series theme music ‘Begging’), Owain Paciuszko (videos and visuals), Lauren Riley (logos and artwork) and Kate Raine (Glossop Heritage Trust research library).
