The Burbage Valley

The fourth collaboration in the current phase of The Seven Wonders focuses on The Burbage Valley, which lies 8km north-west of Sheffield and is largely formed of millstone grit and shale.

In a departure from the practices that shaped earlier collaborations in this series, Paul Evans has created a sequence of six drawings in response to a new poem by Alistair Noon; the poem and drawings trace a route through the valley towards ‘the developing relicts’.

You can read the poem and view the first of these drawings here. A short film comprising all six drawings, the poem and a soundtrack by Brian Lewis can be viewed here (for optimum resolution) or via the small-screen embedded link below:
