WATERSHED LINE

From May to September 2021

Kate is Artist-in-Residence

in the Elan Valley.


The 1892 Water Act allowed Birmingham Corporation to purchase the watershed of rivers Elan and Claerwen. These 70 square miles would provide water to fuel the city’s industrial growth.

The WATERSHED LINE, the perimeter of the land claimed, was, and still is, marked by concrete posts.

Today, 81% of the Elan Estate is an SSSI. Ironically, the economic value of its water has protected it from the use of pesticides and other chemicals, preserving habitats for now rare plants and animals. However, harnessing the natural cycle of these valleys was a feat of Victorian engineering that accelerated industrialisation, contributing to the current global environmental crisis.

As a ‘post-industrial’ pilgrimage in a ‘wild’ landscape, my walk from POST TO POST is a conversation about the complexities of the human footprint.

AUDIENCE RESPONSE to Walking the Pipe

“Kate created a tapestry of words, movement and connection. There are many little tributaries of ideas – reaching out and drawing in people; encouraging us to listen and observe – the sky, earth and water and all things in between. Above all we are connected with one another however loosely. I am much heartened by this.”

‘the best event at Bleddfa in a long time!’

‘to learn about Clare Balding’s car through song – Genius!’

‘Phenomenally thorough’

‘I loved the light and witty nature of the talks’

‘A magical performance’

'Can I have the recipe for the delicious navvy stew?'
