Silent Landscapes

Listen to the sounds of silence at one of the most tranquil areas of Northumberland National Park.

Usue Ruiz-Arana a PhD student from the School of Architecture Planning and Landscape will shortly open his installation "Silent Landscapes" at the Northumberland National Park.

Usue will also be leading a 5 mile round walk on Saturday 15th July at 2pm to mark the opening of the installation. Join him as they put sound amplification to the test,  enjoy open views across the Coquet Valley and experience the hay meadows in bloom.

The project has been funded by Newcastle University and supported by Northumberland National Park.
