Peddars Way, Creaking Tree – February 2023

The strong wind was producing some great sounds, especially when the top of this tree moved against the one next to it. I pressed the recorder up against the bark and I could feel the vibration running down the tree – at about 35 seconds on the recording.

The Peddars Way runs from starts at Knettishall Heath Country Park in Suffolk following the route of a Roman road for 49 miles (79 Km) to Holme-next-the-Sea on the north Norfolk coast.

Blakeney Is Beautiful – July 2017

For part of the Sounding Coastal Change Project in 2017, Year 6 pupils from the Pilgrim Federation of Church of England Primary Schools in Norfolk learned about sound recording.

During a couple of field trips they captured the sounds of birds and insects (and a lot of wind!) along the North Norfolk coastline. They also interviewed residents of Blakeney to capture their thoughts about living in the area.

This sonic snapshot was produced by me and first aired in July 2018 during the Sounding Coastal Change 24 hour broadcast.
