    A good place for idling and rioting
    Getting a bit ahead of myself planning next year's walk, but Greenbelt and last week's conference created a bit of a buzz about it and friendly folks have been offering help, support and best of all the possibility of their presence with me en-route along the M62.

    And to write-up the experience immediately afterwards I've been offered the use of Bill Drummond's artists residency, a tower in Cushendall, Antrim which is made available free to artists provided that whilst there they come up with a piece of artwork (site-specific, any media) which they will leave in the tower's ever-growing exhibition space.

    The Curfew Tower was allegedly built 'as a place of confinement for idlers and rioters'. Some would say I come into the first category. I'd be happy to conform to that image; but after two months on the road by then, my feet may be telling a different story.
