A service road in Northampton in 2016. Just under the surface cobbles, well laid, durable and with a history that goes back to the Romans.
The first cobble stones were found in rivers and streams already rounded by nature, selected for their form, set into sand or mortar. A permanent surface for feet, hooves and wheels creating a stage for our dramas of travel and necessity.
Market day, a festival, visiting relatives, moving house, attending a funeral, looking for work, courting, begging... stories in the stones hidden under our feet.
