Live Soundcamp at TUMP 53, a nature reserve in the Moorings Neighbourhood of Thamesmead, South East London. It is managed by Peabody, connecting children, young people and the wider community with nature and the environment. With a meadow, open water, a moat surrounded by reedbeds and mixed woodland it has many delights including carp; fox; heron; kingfisher; robin; sparrowhawk and willow warbler. It is one of several TUMP’s in the immediate area that were originally Magazine storage facilities built to store artillery, ammunition and explosives. TUMP 53 was during its active days called Magazine No 14, Traffic Number F53 and was used by the Army Ordnance Service for the storage of Cordite (propellant). Just after WW1 there were over 40,00 tonnes of explosives stored in the Thamesmead/Plumstead area, it took until 1962 for it to be removed, just six years before the first Thamesmead housing development was completed.
Part of InspiralLondon streamings: walking, exploring and bivouacing across a variety of urban, suburban and semi-urban sites to listen in - to a revolution of watery commons - dawn to dusk, back to dawn. Inspiralers collaborate on this collective listening and on the ground mapping, this collective stream will also be live for Reveil 8 between 7pm - 8.45pm on 1 May.
