Derbyshire countryside

If you are missing our beautiful countryside listening to the sounds of the Peak District might be just the ticket. The Peak District National Park has worked with the Arts Council and artist Mark Gwynne Jones to create ‘Voices from the Peak’, a new audio recording weaving together people’s stories, places and wildlife into an artistic audio recording.

The soundscape includes the sounds of nature, recordings in old mines and tunnels and the voices of miners, farmers, archaeologists and more to bring together the first chapter of the work.

Voices From The Peak, Chapter One, was released on Friday 17 April which is the 69th anniversary of the Peak District being designated a National Park in 1951.
The soundscape can be downloaded for free from the Peak District National Park Authority’s website
