A reflective walk with Emma Decent and her poetry and prose in the beautiful hills of Cornholme, Todmorden. A magical and unique experience of landscape, writing and performance. On this slow-paced, guided walk in the hills west of Todmorden, Emma shares poetry and prose inspired by this land that she loves. Reflecting on time, memory and being where you are now, this is an experience to put your feet on the ground and your heart at centre.
