2019          Nidder
America’s most important military surveillance base, Menwith Hill, is the target of a nuclear attack, resulting in the total removal of the English dale, Nidder, where the base had been located. In nearby Bradford, a Sufi Brotherhood of musicians attempt to recover in song the landscape and its people lost, including Lindis Percy, the prominent peace campaigner and lifelong National Health Service midwife, and Geoff Workman, a man who spent 105 days occupying the vast cave networks underneath the dale ‘to study the effects of darkness and the absence of time on people’.

‘In the shadows yes, it is somewhat colder. But look how, from the darkness, how bright the bright world is’. Read in full Gareth Evan’s text on Nidder by clicking here.
