ABOUT THE WALK
In December 2020, Green Croft arts commissioned 14 artists who had strong links to Northumberland, Cumbria and nationalities that reflected the past diversity of the communities that built, manned and lived along Hadrian’s Wall. The 9 commissions are creative responses in song, music, sound, story, spoken word and prose which explore the historical, archeological and environmental conflicts and issues that affect contemporary rural communities today.
Using ECHOES: an interactive GPS-triggered sound app, you will follow our plotted circular sound walk along Hadrian's Wall national trail, triggering artistic responses connected to specific locations on the route enjoyed through your headphones. The walk is approximately
7 kms / 4.3 miles and takes around 2-2.5 hours.
