The Shifting Solway Sands
Ann Lingard
Ann has a remarkably varied CV, combining writing fiction with her solwayshorewalker blog, but she is also into weaving, stemming from a desire to make use of the fleeces of the sheep she rears on her small-holding in NW Cumbria within sight of the Solway Firth. Ann was trained as a research scientist but tries to combine art and science in her writing and also in the many talks she gives. She also leads walks, particularly on the shore and knows the Solway extremely well. She will tell us how the Firth came into being, its changing sandbanks and channels, the 'waths' or pathways that cross it, the salt-marshes, the sands and sediments, how animals use them and touch on implications for power-generating systems in the Firth.
