Type of Walk

'During February and March 2013 artist Bob Levene and artist / filmmaker Ian Nesbitt went on a walk following the Metropolitan District Boundary Line of Sheffield City. 65 miles and 75 hours over 9 days of walking down streams, over farmland, through industry and up the M1. Following a clearly defined "non-route" regularly meant scrambling up bracken, sinking into bogs, negotiating industrial complexes and generally being places with a complete lack of walking infrastructure ...'
