Description

Sunday 11th June

Meet outside Beckfords Tower, Bath, BA1 9BH

Sweet Waters: short and longer creative performative walks along the River Avon between Bath and Bristol sensing the legacies of slave-ownership. Wayfaring in obscured histories, reflecting on flow, cycle and memory; alert for sounds, voices, tears, sweat and blood suspended in the water.

Connecting the points of the Triangular Trade (1)

From Beckfords Tower to Saltford Brass Mill.

Approx 5 miles. One steep downhill section.

Meet outside Beckfords Tower at 10:00am

Walkers are encouraged to contribute and share their experiences, there will be opportunities to stop and reflect, write, sketch make recordings and connect on social networks. Richard White plans to work with these for a future creative piece. Artists, poets, historians, naturalists and creatives of all kinds are very welcome.

Walks will go ahead regardless of the weather. All the routes have been recced and details /further information will be supplied on booking. Sorry, no dogs.

Walkers are expected to assess themselves as fit for the distance, come suitably equipped and to carry water and food, there will be pub/cafe stops.
