Singing Viaduct Celebrations 1st-3rd September

Access the Dales has been asked to join with Friends of the Lake District in the

Singing Viaduct Celebrations from 1st- 3rd September on Smardale Gill Viaduct, near Kirkby Stephen.

Join Debbie North, founder of Access the Dales, for an accessible walk through an installation of 20 sound sculptures on top of the 90’ high viaduct.

The event is free but you will need to book a place.

The walk is about 5 miles along a flat, solid track. Ideal for manual wheelchairs and mobility scooters and there are benches along the way for a rest stop. Please bring a packed lunch and in case of rain, wear suitable clothing for a wet weather walking!

Aeolian sound sculptures constantly evolve and change as the wind's movement and intensity varies over time, creating an immersive and ever-changing soundscape that is responsive to the natural environment and provides a magical, unique sensory experience for those who interact with it. Created by Cumbrian artist Dan Fox, director of Sound Intervention based in Ulverston.
