The Sound of Sweetness on the Grand Union Canal

Thomas Spooner

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


On 11th March 2015, the gallant Tom Spooner and brave Simon King struck a course northwest on the Grand Union Canal, exploiting the terrain and the psycho-social boundaries imposed upon them by the city. They have left this message in the hope that others may come and join them in a great urban gathering at the Twyford aqueduct to celebrate their autonomy. - Message in a bottle
