SALT + EARTH: Chalk Coracle II

SALT + EARTH: Chalk Coracle II

The walk begins at East Cliff Coastwatch station, collect a map from the box outside and tune into the VHF radio.

Chalk Coracle II invites you to walk down through the chalk cliffs and down through time. Guided by a gentle audio track and the landscape itself, gain a new perspective on this space where land and sea are one and the same.

Tune into the VHF radio to reveal layers of time as you descend into Folkestone Warren to meet the sea. The sea is both beginning and ending of everything on earth - where do we fit into this cycle? Search for an ancestor on the beach and look across the channel - perhaps your journey is shared by a walker on the other side, looking across to you, seeking a connection that transcends human experience.
The walk involves some slopes, uneven terrain and steps. Walking shoes advised. The walk takes around 1 hour to complete. Bring headphones and an mp3 player or smartphone - we recommend downloading the walk before you set off as signal is limited in the area.

A small number of devices with the audio already downloaded are available to borrow from Urban Room Folkestone, Harbour Street, CT20 1QN, open between 11:00 - 17:00.

Alison is a scenographer and artist based in Folkestone, interested in our connections to place and to each other.
