Once Upon a Time on The Wakefield Way

We are delighted to be part of WordFest 2021 with our new project Once Upon a Time on the Wakefield Way.

The Wakefield Way is a 70 mile walk around the Wakefield Metropolitan District. It takes the walker through attractive undulating countryside of fields and woodland, stretches of water, country estates, charming villages and unexpected views. The walk visits places of historical interest and sites of Wakefield’s industrial past.

We are running writing workshops with community groups around the Wakefield Metropolitan District to create 70 new stories – one for each mile of The Wakefield Way. These stories will then be recorded by professional artists and released as a podcast- perfect to listen to as your walk the historic route.

If you are part of a community group and would like to host one of the writing workshops, or if you have a story you’d like to tell and want to be part of the project, please get in touch using the form below. No experience necessary, just a willingness to have a go.
