Audio Blogs from Oxford

These two audio blogs are from the “SPICE” Project. Last weekend Teessiders, Londoners and Sheffield people descended on Oxford for the final workshop in the series of four. The good people of Jericho took us on a Thames cruise.

There once was an avenue of Poplars, each 100 feet high with 6 foot wide trunks, running along the bank of the Thames between Oxford and the village of Binsey. One day in 1879 they were cut down. This poem “Binsey Poplars” by Gerard Manley Hopkins was recited by Adrian aboard a canal barge as we cruised the Thames and passed the very spot. It was recorded on my mobile phone and uploaded immediately to Audio Boo. ask me anything There is something quite gratifying to record the poem in that very same place and have it time stamped and geo-located to the exact spot.
