The Log Book: Walking and Writing About It
by Deb Todd Wheeler

Since 2019, Deb has guided hundreds of audiowalks through the Lost Pond, with a geo-located sountrack (recorded by LENNYcollective musicians, and co-produced with Terrance Reeves). Although the geo-located audio doesn’t change, no two walks are the same. The RADIO SILENCE audiowalk began as a personal grief ritual, mourning the loss of Deb’s son Lucas and her brother Rob, and has evolved over time into a space of care, connection, and reclamation.

Mythwalking
by Adam Skerrett

Adam Skerrett is a wandering storyteller. He recently ‘beat-the-bounds’ of the Celtic Kingdom of Dumnonia (South-West England), and has since been walking the path-of-the-page, writing his debut book, Mythwalker.
Mythwalker trails the story-lines of the South West Coast Path, weaving together the wonder tales of his adventures, with the myths and legends of the land through which he walked. For Adam, ‘myth-walking’ is a way of reconnecting with the storied landscapes in which we live, and breathe, and have our being; a practice which he shares through guided ‘Myth Walk Experiences.’

“Adam is exploring the terrain where myth and landscape collide. You may find him in the folds of a fairy tale or on the darkening path to the Grey Wethers stones.” – Dr Martin Shaw, author and storyteller
