Join us on a Slowwmo Curated Journey
The Corkscrew area has so much richness of culture, history, landscape and people: and so many stories to tell.
Here at slowwmo, we are bringing these stories together as a series of virtual curated journeys, so that you can join in and be connected. Discover the past and the present, admire the beautiful landscapes and wildlife, and find out about the people in the Corkscrew area and their connections with each other, and with you.
Come and explore with us in our virtual hot air balloon and be inspired.
Smuggling in the 18th and 19th Centuries
Join us as we travel back in time along the old Corkscrew Railway route to Christchurch, and discover the smuggling journeys of larger than life characters that lived and worked in our area in the 18th Century.
Find out about the role of women in smuggling, about the Revenue Men and about the Battle of Mudeford in 1784.
Mad March Hares
Join us on our May curated journey, as we travel to the Dorset Downs, as we search for this delightful and elusive creature in our landscape.
Discover where you can watch hares as they “box” each other in March, and find out about the hare as a creature of myth and legend, and the connection they have with some of our greatest artists and architects.
