Poppies © National Trust Images / Megan Taylor

a calendar of silent walks at twenty-four homes and estates in the care of the National Trust, across England & Wales; held in remembrance of all those aff ected by conflict, to mark the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

guided by Hamish Henderson’s poem ‘End of a Campaign’, which bears witness to ‘our own’ and ‘the others’, a pair of representative poems will be read, and some poppy seeds scattered, at each walk.

Alec Finlay in collaboration with
 Ken Cockburn, Heather H. Yeung, and Luke Allan.
