Phase 2: “…and then there were nine”


We are delighted to welcome Fay Musselwhite and Berlin-based poet Alistair Noon to the Seven Wonders project. Between June and October we will be publishing new collaborative works consisting of poems juxtaposed with paintings and drawings. These will be inspired by our original list of seven wonders, augmented by two new wonders that we have recently identified as essential to a robust, contemporary appreciation of this extraordinary landscape. Phase 2 of The Seven Wonders begins with a reimagining of Kinder Downfall, in which Fay Musselwhite’s poem ‘Phlegmatic’ is paired with a new painting by Paul Evans. You can view the painting and the poem here.

We very much welcome your comments on this new list of nine wonders:
Alport Castles, The Burbage Valley, Chee Dale, Hen Cloud, Kinder Downfall, Mam Tor,  Peak Cavern, Stanage and Thor’s Cave.
