About the Project

Telling the Towpath is a sound-based, geolocated artwork made from community voices. It is now live and available to listen to on the Echoes app, but we are still adding to it!


If you have a story to tell about the canal, be it personal or historical (or even fictional!),

please click ‘Take Part’ below to get in touch.


​To listen to the Telling the Towpath soundwalk for free, either play the tracks below or download the Echoes app. For more information about how to download Echoes click this link.
