On Wednesday we were at Haughton Castle in the Tyne Valley to launch our new mobile app, Poems in the Air. The app was created in collaboration with Northumberland National Park and acclaimed poet Simon Armitage.
The app is part of Northumberland National Park’s Sill Arts Programme. Taking inspiration from hidden gems in the park, Simon has written six new poems. He spent time with park rangers at their favourite places. Getting off the beaten track and exploring some of the park’s lesser-known landmarks.
