Shoreline soundscape guided walk

Thursday 28th July 2022, 10:00 - 12:00

Join sound expert Dan Fox to explore the sounds of the shoreline using battery powered location technology and wireless headphones.

Ever wondered what roots and reeds sound like? This is an amazing opportunity to join a BOOM guided walk with a difference.

This guided walk will take us along the wonderful shorline of Morecambe Bay to discover the sounds that can be heard from inside trees, underwater, from the wriggling of worms and the wooshing of reeds. We will be using hydrophones, content microphones and parabolic dishes to listen closely to the sounds of the Bay. We will discover the lost sounds of Cumbria, with curated bird songs from species that can longer be found in the area, like corncrake.

Join this free event to explore the site - all welcome. Booking required.

The walk covers an exposed site and some rough terrain. Please wear suitable footwear and bring waterproofs, warm layers or sun hat and sun-cream depending on the weather. Please bring any drink or snacks you require. There are no toilets on site.

Families welcome. Suitable for over 5's.

Location: seashore at Bardsea. Park by " the Mill". Meet on the beach opposite the Mill.
