You Are Here

Over the course of one year, Stuart travelled the length and breadth of Essex in search of the sounds that make his home county unique. He collected sounds associated with specific places or locations, sounds of today and yesteryear, traditions and events, local accents, and followed public suggestions as to what constitutes an Essex Sound. Stuart also made recordings in the same locations as archival recordings as a comparison to how the county sounded decades ago. All of the recordings will be available in the ERO sound and video archive for perpetuity, and many of them feature on the Essex Sounds online map.
