Walking piece details
Historic England is working with the National Trust and Sound UK to launch a series of self-guided, immersive sound walks to help people discover the magic of their local high streets for Heritage Open Days. Artist Sandra Kazlauskaite’s sound walk ‘Traces and Echoes: Resounding Grantham’s High Street’ explores how Grantham’s high street – a space of social and cultural exchange – has transformed over time. Take a journey to discover the changing faces of the high street and its forgotten histories. Listen to the hidden, buried, wonderful and imagined stories of Grantham from local residents. Find yourself immersed in the evocative sounds that capture the street’s unique identity. Take a moment to slow down, pause and experience the high street in a new way. High Street Sound Walks are available via the Historic England website from 10 September: listen any time via your smartphone or other personal device. HistoricEngland.org.uk/SoundWalks
