Walk with me - a list of walks and ropes.

Walking with the Waste Land
​Walking with The Waste Land’ is a community group founded by Elspeth Penfold. The group use  walking as a research tool for locating T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land and selected other poems in Margate. The group work closely with Turner Contemporary’s Waste Land Research Group who are developing Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ which will be on show at Turner Contemporary from 27th January – 13th May 2018
 I have invited participants on these walks to collaborate with me in the process and to take a leap of faith as we are never too sure how the walk will evolve or who will turn up on the day. On each of the walks participants have made knots in the ropes I have made for them, to record their experience of the walk.
