"Carol: The Lady of the Lake"
You don't need to rush. You have all the time in the world.
You are in charge of how you experience Pathways. You can walk half the route and return to experience the rest on another day. You can walk a completely different path. You can choose the accessible option. You can listen from your garden or bedroom or greenhouse.
I wanted to extend the reach of Pathways and to include voices from all over Wales. That's why, for the next six Pathways performances, I'll be handing over the reins to one of six emerging storytellers. For this performance, we go to Carol Pearce, a storyteller based in Meifod, Mid-Wales, to hear a magical retelling of the story of the Lady of the Lake.
You can find out more about Carol's storytelling here.
Why not get in touch with Pathways and let us know where you walked through this story?
Below is the route that Carol walked and links to downloading her performance.
