April 2018 – Visualising the new grave

Here’s a taster of what’s happening with William Blake’s grave: this clip shows the current memorial stone in situ, as it has been for about 50 years, and then we see the first sight of Lida Kindersley’s drawn letters on the new stone, in location in her workshop in Cambridge. This shot was filmed on the day the Blake Society committee members came to approve the letters and gave her the green light to cut them.

With grateful thanks to wonderful musician Chris Wood for allowing us to use the opening of his arrangement of Jerusalem (available on his 2013 album, None the Wiser).
