The recordings in this collection were all made as part of the Writing Places project. This project allowed us to work in partnership with Literature Works, who created the project, The National Trust.

Writing Places was designed to celebrate literature and its place in our history. As part of the literary and heritage project, the Archive made recordings to be used in former writers homes cared for by the National Trust in the South West. Including Max Gate and Coleridge Cottage, homes of Thomas Hardy, Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
