M25 (at Folkes Lane), 2016
The first recording in response to public suggestions that traffic noise is a ‘sound of today’. Whilst finding locations to record from, I thought it would be interesting to choose locations where large roads have cut off or through older roads or rights of way.
In this mid-afternoon recording of the M25 I positioned myself on the old path of Folkes Lane, which now extends back down towards the A127 only to become a dead end. There is a more recently created ‘Woodland Area‘ here which offers great views of the surrounding area. You can just make out the black bird struggling to compete with the loud noise of the lorries and cars.
