‘Precarious Landscape’ bus tour
On a cold, bright morning in December 2017 artists Ruth Levene and Ian Nesbitt took a group of participants on a location tour of the western bounds of Preston, looking to broaden and deepen their own understanding of the city’s edges by seeking the experience of others. Precarious Landscape considered what happens to a landscape when the factors that hold the most sway over its future, such as agriculture, housing development, roadbuilding and hydraulic fracking, are driven by external market forces, and sought to reintroduce other ways of understanding the landscape, which give voice to alternative narratives.
Location tour – Ladyewell Shrine, HMS Inskip, Roseacre Wood and Cottam.
Post tour discussion chaired by Landscape Archaeologist, Bob Johnston
