Walking piece details

CostFree

Lore of The Wild is an audio storywalk, co-created and written by Bernadette Russell and Sophie Austin, commissioned through a partnership between Metal and London Borough of Bexley for Estuary 2021.

We invite you to hear stories, songs and sounds from non-human inhabitants of Lesnes, as you walk through this ancient woodland listening to the tracks on your smart phone.

As you journey the route you will hear from the woodland inhabitants and be invited to connect with, observe and interact with the environment. Look out for the faces in the trees, make a decision at the crossroads, experience the oak tree dance, share wisdom with the Green Man and feel a part of the ancient past and the infinite future.

The walk lasts approximately two hours and is suitable for 10+. Please be warned, there are steep inclines, muddy steps, and some tricky terrain. This walking route is not accessible for wheelchair users

The tracks are available on SoundCloud and Spotify.

Pick up the map from the Chestnut Kiosk at Lesnes Abbey Wood, find the Lore of Wild map, below.
