A Week To Walk A Fortnight

Walking piece details

Duration30 minutes

If it takes a week to walk a fortnight….

The seven stories are set (and in some cases were written) in the area of London between the British Library and Smithfield Market. Stories beget stories and each of the printed tales has a companion story that is geo-located nearby the original. These stories are part of a collection with Sunday for Seven Days (all over London) and THE WALKING CURE a 30 minute two-person sound walk, and they are available in chapbook (available here from the Museum of Walking).
