EVERYDAY FUTURES / Walking Field Trip #2: Curiocity: Blackheath to Red House

Saturday 2nd June 2018

A series of field trips to test other walking routes and audio guides, selected by Veriity-Jane Keefe as a way to suggest alternative ways of developing a traditional device, often used in a heritage context.

The second Field Trip will see us walk half of the Curiocity: E – Escaping London walk, produced in partnership with the National Trust. The whole walk is 13 miles long (brilliant in it’s entirety). For this walk we will navigate half of the route, from Blackheath Station to William Morris’ beautiful Red House where we’ll have tea before heading off home.

9.30am Meet at Barking Station. Support for the cost of travel is available, attendees will need to let Verity know in advance and meet at Barking Station to get your travelcard.

10.45am Meet outside Blackheath Station (the exact time of train we’ll be getting will be distributed among attendees closer to the time)

Refreshments will be provided in the form of tea and cake at the wonderful Oxleas Woods Cafe & a tea at Morris’ Red House. All participants will be given a copy of the map. Do look on the Curiocity website as they have produced some amazing walks around London.

We’ll sit and discuss the walk and what devices, if any, might be employed within the EVERYDAY FUTURES walks.

Free event. Register your interest via Eventbrite.

EVERYDAY FUTURES is a Heritage Lottery Funded project led by artist Verity-Jane Keefe in partnership with Barking & Dagenham’s Archives & Local Studies Centre at Valence House.
