Poem Signs from ‘Spoil Heap Harvest - Wordsworth Country’ by Paul Conneally for Transform Snibston.
The poem signs are made from deconstructions of Wordsworth poetry and poems written by Conneally and people from the communities of North West Leicestershire where William Wordsworth and his family lived and worked between 1806 and 1807 at Coleorton.
The signs form part of a curated tour / walk and interactive map based around places associated with William Wordsworth and his family in North West Leicestershire starting and ending at Snibston Discovery Museum, Coalville, Leicestershire.
