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.
