Throughout the Clyde and Avon Valley there are notable viewpoints that allow people to see the expanse of the valley and its waterways, but often in more urban areas these views and experiences are lost, out of sight and often out of mind.

Join the Make Your Way team on a walk with a difference. The What Can We See? Where Can We Go? guided walk will use a series of Periscope Headdress where participants will work together to guide each other on a walk through Lanark with the aim of reconnecting people with their wider landscape, framing views, focusing on details often dismissed on a daily basis.

The walk will take place on Friday 25th November, 2pm, meeting at Lanark Library, before heading out for approximately 90 minutes, it is FREE to attend and all are welcome. Don't be alarmed by the thought of a 90 minute walk, as we will spend a lot of the time looking, taking photos, and chatting about the things we see enroute. Please bring a camera or phone camera along if you can, so that we can capture what it is you are viewing.

We will be joined by Paul Archibald from Lanark Library who will share with us some stories about the history or Lanark and highlight points of interest as we walk. If you are interested in this Periscope Walk you may also be keen to go along to Now You See It, Now You Don't talk, taking place in Lanark Library as part of Book Week Scotland on Wednesday 23 November from 1.30 pm to 2.30pm. 

You are welcome to turn up on the day, but it is always useful to get an idea of numbers in advance. Get in touch with the Make Your Way team: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / Michael (07843145128) if you would like to come along.

Make Your Way is a new project encouraging local people to walk and cycle more whilst exploring the rich heritage of their local area. The project is focussed on the communities of Larkhall, Lanark, Carluke, Stonehouse and Glassford, and includes multiple ways for people to get involved, including activities like Dorodango mud ball challenges, walks with periscopes, art workshops, creative place name activities and creating new art installations to mark certain walking routes.
