Lime Kiln, Beaumont Quay, 2015
I went on a little road trip with artist Alan Hockett, as we have done many times, to a new location. He takes photographs and I make audio recordings, and we have an understanding working relationship giving each other time to do our own thing. I spent around 20 minutes standing inside the very well preserved, and not at all abused but publicly accessible, lime kiln at Beaumont Quay, near Thorpe-le-Soken. The ‘doughnut’ shaped space had strange acoustics which treated the sounds which drifted in from outside. The day was also windy, and given that the building has a few purpose built holes in it (as well as the door), the space was reverberative, but in a compact rather than a spacious way.
