Sounds from a Shallow Sea Audio Walk

An audio walk in West Dorking focusing on the chalk beneath our feet.

Free self-guided walk.

Listen to this special soundtrack created by Alison Carlier as you walk this beautiful, circular route in West Dorking.

Immersing the listener across time and space, this audio walk flows between the geological language of chalk, local peoples’ reminiscences of chalk used in the classroom, regionally sourced historical folk song, observations of the landscape from local poets combined with ambient recordings of the sea. 

This is a free, self-guided walk, open to everyone. Walkers are advised to wear sturdy shoes.
