In 2010 Simon Armitage spent 19 days walking the 256 mile Pennine Way as a 'modern troubadour'. Armitage’s account of the walk, Walking Home, was published in 2012.
This resource presents archive material relating to the walk and creation of Walking Home, held by Special Collections.
The documents seen here illuminate Armitage's writing processes, and invite us to consider the relationship between different kinds of writing and landscape.
Digital mapping tools and photographs enable us to map Armitage’s prose and poetry to a specific location and terrain.
