Getting Lost in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

8 September 2017 // Miscellany

With original music by Darren Hayman, Let’s Get Lost is a new app which allows you to take a self-guided sound walk in an inner city wilderness. Simply download the free app from iTunes, bring headphones and get lost in forgotten voices and hidden layers in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, a little-known gem in London’s East End.

The last of London’s magnificent seven cemeteries, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is the largest urban woodland in London. The sound walk is a mixture of interviews and field recordings threaded with archival recordings from the British Library, and has been made specifically to listen to whilst wandering the cemetery park’s winding paths.

There is no set route, no wrong or right way to go; simply press play and explore.

Download the app here.
