A little flurry of media activity has coincided with the launch of the latest exhibition of the A41 Project, which is now on show at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Birkenhead, Wirral, until 26th January 2014.

We held an informal launch last week, with colleagues, friends and family making for a very interesting and enjoyable morning. Just as the coffee and cake levels were depleting, in walked the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Dave Mitchell, whom I had the pleasure of piloting around the exhibition and explaining a bit about my photography and the work made by the participatory group of photographers whose work is also on display at the gallery.

The show has been featured in several local and regional publications this week, including The Big Issue, the Liverpool Echo and Wirral News. In addition, I recorded an interview with Sean Styles for his BBC Radio Merseyside morning show; the conversation was then broadcast on 4th November 2013 – listen to it here:

 

The A41 project’s final scheduled exhibition will take place in September 2014 in London – more details to follow.

    A few years ago I set off from Marble Arch determined to follow the A41 to Woodside.

    This was after a day spent working in London and I followed the early evening traffic heading North.

    For the most part I found the journey easy to follow until hitting The Midlands.

    Somewhere around Land Rover at Solihull and entering Wolverhampton I varied from the route. After a short rest I headed North up the stretch I know best from Cosford.

    Has the timing of the route been decided yet?

    Good luck.
