Walk The Line - Brendan Jackson

Walking the Line across Hawkesley Square

During Walk the Line - a piece that forms part of artist Maurice Maguire's bigger project 'Changing Landscapes' and involved us walking the line of the Wast Hill Canal Tunnel overland through the 3 Estates -I had the pleasure of meeting Brendan Jackson and today found a piece by him on his site about the event and so much more too - a good example of how engagement with space with people can connect us with past present and place all at the same time.If you've never dropped by Brendan's site here is a link to the piece coming out of Walk the Line and you can travel on with him from here:

I'll post more on Walk the Line soon.
