CHRIS WHITEHEAD: ESTUARY

Arnside stands where the estuary of the River Kent opens out into the vast, featureless expanse of sand that is Morecambe Bay. Classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty, this desolate landscape of mudflats and tidal channels is sliced through by the Arnside Viaduct, a 477m long railway bridge over the estuary built in 1857.

Some trains carry a cargo of nuclear waste, often from other countries, to be processed at Sellafield Nuclear Reprocessing Plant further up the coast. The reinforced containers used to transport the waste are known as coffins. Some of the recordings were made using hydrophones to capture the ever present flow of water and the breathing mud.

Thanks to Chris Corner for help with mastering. http://impulsivehabitat.com/index.htm
