Warnscale: A Land Mark Walk

A culmination of an experimental new project the publication is designed to enable participants to undertake a self-guided/performed walk in the Warnscale area of fells that lie to the south of Buttermere in the Lake District thereby making their own journey the 'missing' life-event of becoming a biological parent, for which there is no traditional rite of passage.

On 16 May & 17 May 2015, the book will be launched with an exhibition and two days of group walks with Louise. Those who want to join a walking group will need to register through the website here where they will also be able to reserve a copy of the book.  Each walk will be followed by light refreshments at the exhibition in Buttermere Village Hall, which will also be open to the public throughout the weekend, about the development of the project and a chance to talk with Louise and others involved in the creation of the book.

The book will subsequently be available for purchase through this website and groups and individuals can undertake the walk in their own time. For information about how to book a place on one of the two group walks planned to launch the project, please visit the gold tabs above. 

The project has been made possible with support from Arts Council England, Arts & Humanities Research Council; Seed Bed Trust and LICA, Lancaster University.
