As part of the trail, sound artist Joseph June Bond has worked closely with the community to create two new immersive sound artworks. Titled ‘Mud’ and ‘Marsh’, the works are inspired by the sounds of local industries, incorporating residents’ stories of Barking Riverside’s past, underwater recordings and the sounds of local youth ‘playing’ the landscape like an instrument.

The Wildlife & Wellbeing Trail is commissioned by Create London and funded by Barking Riverside Limited.
