Keep your eyes peeled over April and May for some brand new releases as we bring the Tipping Points project to its close! We will be releasing an exclusive exhibition of artwork and nature writing from our winter workshops, as well as the workshop materials themselves, and finally our “slow conversations” series on farming, the environment and landscape decisions! Check back on the Land Lines website for more soon…

About Land Lines

This is the website for Land Lines, a research project that explored British nature writing from the late eighteenth century to the present. The project, running between 2017 and 2019, was a collaboration between researchers from the Universities of Leeds, Sussex and St Andrews, and involved various public events, including a museum exhibition, public talks, schools and a family fun day. This website acts as an information hub for past activities relating to the project, for current events organised as part of its two follow on projects, Tracks, Traces and Trails and Tipping Points. It also hosts the popular Land Lines blog. Land Lines and its follow on projects are funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
