This is the armchair version of the Witness Waters Story Trail which you can experience from the comfort of your own home!

It was created in July by participants at the Etruria Boat Festival 2021.

On the Sunday of the event writer Maya Chowdhry invited participants to write and record short poems and stories, celebrating water, where it has come from, where it might go. These recordings were presented for 2 weeks on a trail along the towpath between Etruria Industrial Museum (with one end at the base of the footbridge on the Etruria site) and the other end in Hanley Park (on the bridge opposite the bandstand).

The poems and stories were written and recorded by Azra, Leanne, Saul, Angela, Faith, Frankie, Freya, Flint, Jake, Laurie, Yassin, Sasha, Saul, Aaron, Harry, Keith, Emmy, Payton.

Additional voice recordings by Emily, Natalie, Rebecca, Hillary & Said
