The Halt is an occasional series of poems, essays, and field recordings documenting and reflecting on walks in the eastern counties of England.  The words, sounds and images are by Brian Lewis, editor and curator of Sheffield-based poetry publisher Longbarrow Press.

East Wind, a hand-stitched, hand-stamped pamphlet comprising three lyrical essays and a haiku sequence, is now available from Gordian Projects.  Click on the links below to read Brian Lewis’s essays for the Longbarrow Press blog:
