The Last Of England: Lizard Point

Images from a recent Artists Residency with the Lumen Group London and Mayes Creative. A glorious long-weekend of coastal walking, star watching and fascinating conversations between artists and photographers of wide-ranging practices. I was working with my iPhone X Max and an Ensign Ful-Vue camera c1947.

Kirby Muxloe …
Mow Cop and Scholar Green … No more will I go to Blandford Forum and Mortehoe
On the slow train from Midsomer Norton and Mumby Road.
No churns, no porter, no cat on a seat
At Chorlton-cum-Hardy or Chester-le-Street.
We won’t be meeting again
On the Slow Train.

I’ll travel no more from Littleton Badsey to Openshaw.
At Long Stanton I’ll stand well clear of the doors no more.
No whitewashed pebbles, no Up and no Down
From Formby Four Crosses to Dunstable Town.
I won’t be going again
On the Slow Train.

On the Main Line and the Goods Siding
The grass grows high
At Dog Dyke, Tumby Woodside
And Trouble House Halt.

The Sleepers sleep at Audlem and Ambergate.
No passenger waits on Chittening platform or Cheslyn Hay.
No one departs, no one arrives
From Selby to Goole, from St Erth to St Ives.
They’ve all passed out of our lives
On the Slow Train, on the Slow Train.

Cockermouth for Buttermere … on the Slow Train,
Armley Moor Arram … Pye Hill and Somercotes … on the Slow Train,
Windmill End.
