Storyteller Clare Viner joined the Connecting the Culm project during 2021. She journeyed through the Culm catchment, discovering and weaving stories as she travelled.
Exploring how we use the river, discovering legends from the area and taking inspiration from her adventures, Clare’s stories aim to reimagine how we can live in harmony with the river into the future.
Watch the recording to listen to some of Clare’s stories. Clare paints a unique picture of the Culm landscape featuring dragons, floods, doves, pixies and much more!
