Soundwalk - The Secret Sounds of Trees

Let sound artist Jez riley French take you on a self-guided journey of Beechenhurst in this soundwalk.

Using headphones via your personal device, start the audio in your favourite part of Beechenhurst and take a slow walk through the forest. The route is entirely up to you.

Guided by Jez’s gentle narration you’ll discover the secret sounds of Beechenhurst’s trees, plants, soil and insects normally inaudible to the human ear.

Listen deeply and learn about the inner life of the forest and how it interconnects. Allow the sounds of this environment to transport and stimulate your senses.



The Secret Sounds of Trees is commissioned and produced by Sound UK. Funded by Arts Council England, The National Lottery Heritage Fund and PRS Foundation. In partnership with Forestry England, Cinderford Artspace and Wilde Earth Journeys.
