Simon Armitage - Poetry in Motion...

Poetry in motion: exploring Simon Armitage's new Stanza Stone trail in West Yorkshire – audio slideshow
The brooding natural landscape of West Yorkshire has inspired writers for centuries. Now poet Simon Armitage has left his mark on the countryside by carving six verses into rocks along the 47-mile Stanza Stones Trail. He tells Kevin Rushby how keen-eyed walkers might spot a seventh 'secret stanza' and reads from his poem Mist.

Stanza Stones is an imaginative collaboration between Simon Armitage and Ilkley Literature Festival. Writing Britain features over 150 literary works, including many first-time loans from overseas and directly from authors: sound recordings, videos, letters, photographs, maps, song lyrics and drawings - as well as manuscripts and printed editions.
